Gone But Not Forgotten

Today we participated in a historical event.  Four female pastors, two Americans, and two Lebanese stood together and served communion. Earlier this year, these two pastors received the honor of being the first females to be ordained in the Middle East.   It was emotional, lots of tears and lots of photos! The message  Reverend Najla Kassab sends home to America, “Convey our love to your churches and thank them for their prayers”.

We represented seven churches from the United States, visiting different churches throughout Lebanon.  What we learned is there is only one church, with the same ministry ….love and service!

God bless, Syria, Lebanon, and the United States of America.  God bless you and your family!
