Middle East

Region Description:

The Middle East holds the heart of Islam, and it is also known for violence, instability, war, and oil. The region stretches from Egypt on the west to the Arabic peninsula. Over 90% of all people living in this region are Muslims.

Region Stats:

For many years, the region was very closed to the gospel and hardly any gospel workers could enter the area. While there are still many difficulties we face when working in the area, doors have been opened to bring the gospel to a people hungry and ready for the gospel. The harvest is ready!

Currently, there are 161 Live Schools in the region. Live School students are busy mobilizing and activating the church in the region in ways that amaze us. The stories of how the Lord is using his people and Live School truly blesses us.
