Almost All Here
These inlaid crosses from Damascus are a special reminder of why we have come to Beirut--- to encourage our extended family of faith during these difficult times. Beginning last night, Outreach team leader Marilyn Borst began meeting and greeting additional team members arriving in Beirut. Weary from the long journey, everyone is in eager anticipation for all that God will do to us, for us and through us in this place. Our local hosts, the National Evangelical Synod of Syria and Lebanon, have been preparing for our visit. Tomorrow we begin a steep but rich learning curve as we absorb stories of the faith and faithfulness of the church in Syria. We will discern the ways in which we can walk with and support our friends as they endure the raging conflict.
We still await several of our team members before our circle is complete. We will update our activities in the next several days.
