CBM’s partner, the Lebanese Society for Educational and Social Development (LSESD), seeks to build bridges between communities. Each of their ministries offers a unique opportunity to build relationships, share the gospel and demonstrate the reality of the Kingdom of God. Support this project with financial contributions and prayer.
Lebanon, a small country on the coast of the eastern Mediterranean, stands at the crossroads of West and East, the Mediterranean Basin and the Arabian hinterland. For centuries, Lebanon’s mountains provided a refuge for many religious minorities. Today, there are 18 official religious groups, and political power is divided among them. This ethnic and religious diversity is part of Lebanon’s cultural identity, but also a source of tension that led to a devastating civil war. Then with the influx of Syrian refugees, and the political, economic, and pandemic turmoil in recent years, the Beirut blast devastated the nation’s capital.
CBM’s partners on the ground have been working tirelessly to provide ongoing support, recovery, and investment in the livelihoods of families and the community, through the help of the local church. It is currently a period of transformation, as churches that went silent after the war have been going out into the streets to help, and coming together to pray.
