Servants Going Out in the Middle East

servants going out Middle East

In a small apartment high in a tan tower among thousands in a desert city, something sacred happened. A group gathered in a circle as spiritual parents laid their hands on the heads of graduates. It was an act of blessing to accompany their prayer. "The moment had something of the early years of missions," Aquila explained. "The Kingdom is built, people sent out, new people prepared, and many ask themselves where they can be useful in God's hands." Aquila and Priscilla lead a team of passionate, committed servants going out in the Middle East/North Africa (MENA).

"The air was filled with excitement and holiness, holy because we all sensed that the Lord Himself was at work."

- Aquila

A Spiritual Family Supports Servants Going Out

In a region of tribes, family matters. The staff, students, interns, and partners of the ministry in the MENA feel "the joy of belonging to one family." Nine new students graduated from three months of intensive training. Now they enter six months of guided internship. Their spiritual family will teach them, encourage them, assist them, pray with them, and walk with them. This prepares them for long-term fruitful ministry in the MENA region. The family members have been through training, internship, mentoring, and ministry in the region.

"Looking back on two big training classes, two staff retreats and many camps," Aquila says, "the year 2022 has been the most fruitful of the last 13 years in Egypt and Lebanon."

Going Out of Egypt into the MENA

From the safety of the circle of blessing and prayer, servants are going out and into least-reached communities within Majority regions. Aquila asks, "Would you pray for our new group of fieldworkers as they enter an internship of challenging tasks in Egypt, Lebanon, Türkiye  and Sudan?
