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). Pray for the political situation in Lebanon, for God to protect those who are protesting on the streets, for wisdom for government leaders and for peace for the nation. Pray for Joe as he starts a discipleship class with people with a Muslim background, as they’ve asked to be baptised. Pray for guidance and protection for them as they start their journey with Christ. Pray for Joe as embarks on a trip to Sudan – for a fruitful time, new connections and success in determining new ways to partner with the church.
