Destination Lebanon: Preparing for a Journey of Solidarity

A group of ten from across the United States will come together in Beirut, Lebanon, May 15-24, as a sign of encouragement to the leaders and refugees of the Syrian Presbyterian church.  Sponsored by The Outreach Foundation, Franklin, Tennessee, the trip is intended to encourage the church in Syria through these difficult times. The team will be meeting with leaders of Presbyterian churches in the Synod of Syria and Lebanon.  The group, in a step of solidarity, will also discern ways in which we in the United States and elsewhere can most effectively provide support and partnership at this critical time.

Starting on the 17th,  daily updates will be made to this blog informing our friends and relatives of the day's progress.  Check regularly, and please pray for both the team and our Syrian friends.
