Thousands of international tourists come to Switzerland during the summer, including many Arabs from the Arabian Peninsula. Many have never had the opportunity to personally meet a Jesus follower or to hear the Gospel in their home country. We want to take this unique opportunity and use the freedom we have in Switzerland to share God`s love with the Arabs from the Arab Peninsula.
In OM Albania one of the opportunities for mission to be able to reach and serve communities that are not yet reached for the gospel, is for people to come and serve with their professions.  One of the professions we are looking for is a dentist.  If God has endowed you with this profession and you want to practice it in a country other than your country of origin, you have the opportunity to be one of the pioneers of this new ministry in Albania.
