As our church planting teams seek to make Christ know in the Arab world, they aim to practically bless the communities in which they live. And as they build friendships and show God’s love, seeds are sown and opportunities for gospel conversations arise.
Using medical skills, establishing good businesses, running community development projects, and other vocations, are all excellent ways of blessing communities and getting embedded in cross-cultural living. But have you ever thought that your seemingly simple ability to speak English can be utilised as a tool too?
English is the most widely spoken language in the world, and the desire to learn it spans the breadth of the Arab world. From Saudi to the Sahara; Lebanon to Libya; Refugees in Birmingham, to Royals in Bahrain; English is in high demand.
