The Outreach Foundation invites you to revisit this trip blog as a group of nine women from Presbyterian churches around the U.S. make a unique mission-vision journey to the Middle East to meet, learn about and build personal relationships with Presbyterian women from Syria, Lebanon and Iraq. Led by Marilyn Borst, The Outreach Foundation’s Associate Director for Partnership Development, they begin departing from the States on July 23. The core of this journey will be spent at the lovely conference and retreat center of the National Evangelical Synod of Syria and Lebanon at Dhour Schweir, where they will spend a week with 80-100 Presbyterian sisters who have come from difficult places for a time of learning, fellowship and exuberant worship.
