Joe is CBM’s National Field Staff in Beirut, Lebanon, working with local partners to develop strategies for ministry and to provide support to graduates of the Arab Baptist Theological Seminary (ABTS) as they build ministries in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). Please say a prayer of gratitude for the increasing number of Syrians who have been attending discipleship meetings as well as a woman in the group who started a home bible study group with a Syrian family. Pray for Sudan in this time of instability and for the Sudanese church to witness Jesus through love and compassion.
