Joe is CBM’s National Field Staff in Beirut, Lebanon, working with local partners to develop strategies for ministry and provide support to graduates of the Arab Baptist Theological Seminary (ABTS) as they build ministries in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). Please pray for a couple who graduated from ABTS and are serving in Morocco. Please pray for provision and protection, that they may keep their house which is used to hold church. Pray for four Syrian refugees from Muslim backgrounds who serve and attend the weekly Bible studies as they have decided to follow Christ and requested to be baptized. Pray for them as they commence their discipleship courses. Please also pray for the Bridis’ children, Jad and Rami as they start the school year.
