Emad and Almess were appointed by CBM 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 and is also developing resources and models for ministry in that context. While both Emad and Almess are involved in mentoring students in ministry and leadership skills, Almess also explores opportunities to work with Iraqi and Syrian refugees. Please continue to pray for the country of Lebanon as the political situation is still unstable. Pray for the leadership team of ABTS as they make decisions in this difficult situation. Please pray for the Botroses’ students to grow in their knowledge of God’s will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding so that their lives are fully pleasing to Him and bear fruit in every good work. Pray that they grow in knowledge and character. Please pray for their son Timothy, who is about to write an important final exam that will help him to transition into the next stage of his studies. Pray for Emad as he aims to finish his PhD studies this semester. Pray for wisdom, peace, and strength for the whole family.
