About Outreach in the Middle East with Rania
Rania sees physical needs as open doors to show the love of Christ, with a long view to sharing the Gospel of the true God. Those living in her city along the desert river number over half a million. The urban area is home to nearly a million people. In the 6th century, Nubian people converted to Christianity, until Islamization began and virtually all of the people group followed the majority religion. Today, animistic beliefs mingle with Islamic practices. Family honor and roles are important to these families. A lack of health care, education, and basic supplies make life difficult, especially for women and girls. Rania focuses on building relationships with women in villages along the life-giving North African river and on helping the local church see their role in outreach. Her hospitable spirit opens doors in her own city and around the region where her heart language, cultural understanding, and spiritual gifts connect with people walking in darkness. God uses Rania's heart for Gospel outreach to strengthen the local church and give hope in His name to vulnerable people in the Middle East.
