Help share the good news with tourists from different countries in the Arab Peninsula, as they have very few, or even no opportunity to hear the Gospel in their home countries. We want to take this unique opportunity and use the freedom we have in Switzerland to share God`s love with the Arab from the Arab Peninsula.This is a special opportunity for you to bring hope and light to people living in the heart land of Islam, in the Arabian Peninsula. You will also gain a better understanding of Islamic culture and religion through:
- personal contacts with Muslims
- fellowship with brothers and sisters having experience in or coming from the Middle-East
Available for: Singles Couples Families
A typical day consists of worship and prayer, training sessions, learning from each others outreach experiences and free time.
Outreaches will consist of: sharing the gospel on a personal level, DVDs & New Testaments distribution and intercession on site. The Jesus film will be showed open air.
During the morning sessions we will hear testimonies and have some special lessons in which we learn more about Islam and what it means to live in the Arab world. We learn as well how to start a conversation and and share Christ with muslims.
During outreach the teams consist of people sharing and people praying we are alternately in a small outreach or prayer group as we walk around Interlaken.
