Letter from the Director

 

Hello and welcome to our Mission to Arabs website!

It has been quite a journey over the years as I have watched the Lord build and maintain Mission to Arabs from the ground up. It is a common quote from all of us here at MTA to say, “Truly the Lord doesn’t need us! He is only allowing us the privilege to join in His work!” Too many times we encounter people who have had dreams or visions that have led them to seek answers about Christianity, and God is always faithful to lead those thirsty people to us or to place someone in their lives who gives us a call and asks us to come and talk with them. We are learning that as we seek the Lord and ask for His Spirit to work in the hearts of the people here, it is God doing the work! We are merely honored to be a part!

Our mission statement/vision here at MTA is “Bringing back the Gospel to the Arab World.” This region is where Christianity began, but now it is hard to see its remnants, at least on the surface. I would like to take this opportunity to encourage you all. I know that the majority of the media reports on the Middle East are the negative things happening here; however, GOD IS WORKING! Allow us to be the eyes and ears to report to you now the fruitfulness underneath all the chaos and wars reported on the news! Jesus said, “I will build my church, “ in Matthew 16:18, and we are here to proclaim, truly He is faithful to His Word, for great is the work that His hands are doing here!

It is an honor and a privilege to be the director of this organization and its amazing staff. Truly the Lord has blessed this organization and its staff for the purpose of spreading his renown in this region of the world.

I believe one of the hardest things about our work here in the Middle East, are the security measures we must take due to the nature of our work and the area we are working in. We would love to be able to personally know you all more and place more pictures and details for you all; however, it is simply not possible due to security risks. Please know that although we cannot connect with you as deeply as we would like, we are so very encouraged to have you all linking arms with us from around the world. By your encouragement and willingness to give, you all help, motivate and make it possible for us to keep on sharing the Good News with the Arab people.

So please continue to pray for the people here and the work the Lord is doing! Pray for all of us here at MTA as we daily seek the Lord for direction and wisdom. He is worthy of our lives and obedience!

Thank you once again for your support and encouragement to all of us here at Mission to Arabs. We hope and pray that you too are walking in the Light alongside us (1 John 1:7).

In Him,

Dr. Andrew
