Thousands of international tourists come to Austria 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 Austria to share God`s love with the Arabs 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 - training - fellowship with brothers and sisters having experience in or coming from the Middle-East
Participants will be part of an 4 Person Outreach Team that serves in either the afternoon or evening shift. Each team will consist of a praying pair (intercession on site) and an engaging pair, sharing the gospel on a personal level and distributing literature (new testaments, dvd's, SD-cards…) During the morning sessions we will spend time in worship&prayer and devotion, 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 share Christ with Muslims. During free time you can enjoy the wonderful nature of Austrias mountainous landscape.
We are an international team, therefor the team and outreach language is English. Participants speaking Arabic are very welcome! Participants need to be willing to humbly learn about the culture and religion of the Arabs. We welcome families with children. Please contact us to discuss costs and availability.
