Help share the good news with tourists from different Arab countries, as they have very few, or even no opportunity to hear the Gospel in their home countries. Thousands of international tourists come to Austria during the summer, including many Arabs from the Arabian Peninsula. We want to take this unique opportunity and use the freedom we have in Austria to share God’s love with the Arab world.
Participants will be part of a 4 person Outreach Team that serves in either the afternoon or evening shift, engaging Arabs and praying for the work. As the Gospel is shared, gifts of bibles or evangelistic movies/tracts may be offered. Each team will consist of a praying pair and an engaging pair. During the morning sessions we will hear testimonies and learn more about Islam and living in the Arab world, as well as learning how to start a conversation and talk about Jesus.

A typical day consists of elements of worship & prayer, training sessions, learning from each other’s outreach experiences and free time.
