Elie and Mireille Haddad serve with CBM in Lebanon as Team Leaders for the Middle East and North Africa region. They help the team reach organizational ends by directing, coaching and empowering CBM Field Staff and assisting our national partners. The Haddads promote their sphere of ministry both on the field and here in Canada, and they help shape the agenda for the future. Elie also serves as President of the Arab Baptist Theological Seminary (ABTS) in Beirut, Lebanon, which equips leaders for the church in the entire Arabic-speaking world. Pray for protection over those in the Lebanese judicial system. May they be given boldness and impartiality so that corruption does not go unpunished and justice runs its course, paving the way for fiscal and governmental reform. Pray for the people of Lebanon – that they will not be driven by fear during this economic situation. Many gas stations are temporarily closing across the country due to limited access to foreign currencies and the country’s ability to import essential goods (such as food, medicine, and fuel) is declining. Pray for God’s Kingdom to grow at all times and during all circumstances in Lebanon. Pray for God to give His Church a spirit of generosity to reflect His love to the community during this time.
