Remodeling Almost Done!

Since we began remodeling our new expansion facility in Beirut, tons of exciting things have happened:

1. Horizons’ President, Georges Houssney filmed 26 teaching episodes for Satellite TV in front of a live studio audience in Beirut.

2. Horizons’ MENA team hosted the first-ever Eastern Staff Summit, bringing staff from 8 nations together.

3. People have been coming to Christ at the Beirut center in increasing rates – in June alone there have been over 50 proclamations of faith in Christ!!!

4. The MENA team has added new staff, including a Discipleship Coordinator, a Women’s Ministry Coordinator, and an Assistant to the MENA Regional Director.

Meanwhile, we have been spending the rest of our time preparing the expansion facility in order to:

1. Serve as the headquarters for the MENA team, as we prepare for expansion throughout the region.

2. Provide space for 1-to-1 discipleship in a bookshop/café setting.

3. Provide an extra classroom for discipleship classes and smaller meetings.

We’re not quite done yet, but here are some pics of our progress so far!
