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. We want to take this unique opportunity and use the freedom we have in Austria to share God’s love with the Arab world.
This is a special opportunity for you to bring hope and light to people living in the rest of the year in the heart of Islam, in the Arabian Peninsula and the Near East. You will also gain a better understanding of Islamic culture & religion through:
- Personal contacts with Muslims
- Training
- Fellowship with brothers and sisters having experience in or coming from the Middle-East
A typical day consists of elements of worship & prayer, training sessions, learning from each other’s outreach experiences and free time.

Outreaches will consist of: sharing the gospel on a personal level, DVDs & New Testaments distribution and intercession on site. 

During the morning sessions we will hear testimonies and have some special lessons in which we learn more about Islam and what it means to live in the Arab world. We will also how to start a conversation and talk about Jesus.

In the evenings we will alternate between being in small outreach or prayer groups as we walk around in Zell am See.
