Fortress Gate #4

We are back at home. We had a very good "first trip". We knew in advance that this would be a a challenge. There are over 400,000 Palestinians living in Lebanon. The vast majority is Muslim. Their opportunities for education and employment are severely restricted. They are politically isolated. As a result, most Palestinians live in dire poverty. Because of the history of political and ethnic division it is difficult to gain access to Palestinian areas. However, we are confident that God wants the best for these people. We hope to return to the area soon. In the mean time we will be mobilizing people to pray.
