We have teamed up with David and Kim Morter of Global Hope Strategies to reach the Muslim people of the Middle East with the Gospel of Jesus. We send monthly support to the Lebanese school they minister in. We also helped them build a retaining wall on the property that they desperately needed. They financial support also helps them stay on the mission field of Lebanon for the work of God. They are doing a great work of helping the refugees from the Syrian war.
David and Kim believe that a single action can make a difference in the community and that collective action can greatly impact the world. With great dedication to “go in to all the world,” David and Kim’s team works strategically to bring positive change to their sphere of influence through the Gospel of Jesus by personally engaging the lost.
In their words:
“If you had asked my husband, David, and me five years ago where we’d be living today, I’m sure we would have said Texas! We never dreamed God would take us to a foreign country, much less one in the Middle East. But six years ago, God spoke to us about His love for the Muslim community and called us to be His hands and feet to them.
“During a short-term mission trip to Lebanon, we saw the effects of the civil war firsthand and both heard God speaking something crazy to our hearts. He didn’t command that we go, He just said, ‘I would love for you to join Me in what I’m doing here. Would you consider being My ambassadors in this region?’ We came home and immediately began preparing to return to Lebanon. As we prepared for the transition, we experienced one of the most difficult seasons of our lives. We faced attacks from the enemy on our marriage, finances, and health—but we didn’t give up. We prayed, ‘God, we want all of You and all you have for us!’
“Now, two years later, we are living and ministering in Lebanon. Our joy is bringing the kingdom of God and the good news of the gospel to this struggling region. We host short-term ministry and medical teams coming from the United States. Our goal is to use technology for the glory of God and help organizations here become all God has called them to be. David uses his skills to help equip and train churches and organizations in worship arts, and I have been able to use my skills in coordinating, training, and networking.
“Our absolute favorite facet of ministry is working with refugees. We join ministry partners in camps to offer English and health classes as well as Bible studies. Today, more Muslims are open to hearing the gospel than ever before. Once they hear the story of God’s love for them and the sacrifice He made for them, many respond positively.”
