Please pray for our field staff in Lebanon, Emad and Almess Botro and their two boys Timothy and Nathaniel. Pray for Emad as he continues to work on his PhD dissertation. His next chapter is due by the end of January 2019. Emad and Almess were appointed by CBM in January 2015 to serve at the Arab Baptist Theological Seminary (ABTS) in Lebanon. Emad serves as a lecturer in the areas of Old Testament and Islamic studies at ABTS. Please pray for the resources and models for ministry in the Middle Eastern context that Emad is developing. Pray for Almess as she explores opportunities to work with Iraqi and Syrian refugees. Please pray for the Botros family and for doors to continue to open and further their ministry.
