The Arab World has long been an important and strategic area of the world, and its current position is no different. Egypt and the Arab World are experiencing a unique time in history following the Arab Spring and wars in the region in the last 10 years. It is definitely a time of open doors and harvest, as we see more and more of the majority coming to know Him. And at the same time, it is a time of great need for the local Church.
In many countries, the local Church has become incredibly small with very few believers living in the cities, due to war, displacement and the pandemic. And in other countries, the local Church has transformed into having mostly refugees and not indigenous people. In Egypt, the Church is stable, but now disconnected a bit and with lower attendance in the large city churches due to COVID-19. Our partner church for around 20 years now, Kasr El Dobara Evangelical Church (KDEC), has been learning how to navigate ministry outside the church in the midst of the pandemic, which is very challenging.
At this time, there is a great need for the global Church to come alongside the local churches in Egypt and the Arab Region to both support and strengthen them, to serve their own congregations and members, as well as members of the majority, and support the sending of local native Arabic speaking missionaries to other countries in the region. They need discipleship trainings, committed powerful prayer, financial support, and much more! And it’s by serving the local churches and standing alongside them that we will have the greatest impact in the region to reach the multitudes of the harvest through them.
