My name is Samar.

I am a Master of Divinity graduate of the Arab Baptist Theological Seminary in Lebanon. I work as a counsellor and Bible teacher at a school. Since the Syrian crisis started, I am also involved in my church’s ministry among refugees. We spend much time in prayer with them. A lot of healings have happened. I do discipleship training for women who have come to faith, who are now themselves leading Bible study groups, and others to faith. They pray with such fervor. The joy and transformation that you see in them is so beautiful. It is amazing to see what God is doing through the whole Middle East. It is just beautiful to be a part of it.

At ABTS, 40% of residential students and 60% of staff are women. Despite the conservative cultures Arab women serve in, they are effectively sharing the Gospel through their ministries and are essential in the development of strong church bodies in the Middle East and North Africa
