The Palestinian government’s UN application for formal recognition as a state has caused frantic international diplomacy.
Jesus is the answer
‘The only hope for peace for the Middle East is truly Jesus.’
These inspiring words were spoken by a Jewish believer in Jesus sharing his testimony during a global Christian conference last summer.
An Arab Christian sharing the platform with her Jewish brother in Christ added,
‘In the Messiah, there is room for all of us. He calls us to be one family. Reconciliation has changed me and my enemy.’
Our prayer at AWM is for the peoples of the Middle East to come to faith in Christ. We believe that true hope comes from the power of the gospel.
‘I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes..’ Romans 1:16

Are you up for a challenge this summer? 💪
We're looking for people to serve at an English language school in the Arabian Peninsula: no prior teaching experience necessary!
After a week of orientation and teacher training, spend four weeks teaching with your own classroom.
📢 New short-term opportunity! 📢
The UK is a fantastic place to engage in cross-cultural mission!
Spend two weeks with an experienced long-term team in England, seeing how you can reach the nations, right here.
How can you reach out to people groups in nations that are difficult to access? One way is to serve diaspora communities.
In this short-term Edge team, you'll get the chance to help in the running of an English language school for refugees.
Joining an Edge team is a great way to encounter God's compassion for the nations and to see how you could engage in cross-cultural mission at home or in the future.
You probably won't change the world in a week or two, but God could change yours forever.
