This is a special opportunity for you to bring hope and light to people living in the heart land of Islam, in the Arabian Peninsula. Help share the good news with tourists from different 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 Switzerland to share Gods love with the Arabs from the Arabian Peninsula.

You will also gain a better understanding of Islamic culture and religion through:

  • personal contacts with Muslims
  • training
  • fellowship with brothers and sisters having experience in or coming from the Middle-East

Ministry Details

Participants will be part of an outreach team that serves in either the afternoon or evening shift. Each team will consist of a praying pair and an engaging pair. Participants will serve as part of a four-person team, at the book table engaging passers by or at the Jesus film showing.

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 learn how to start a conversation and share Christ with Muslims. Prayer, worship and devotion are all part of the morning programme.

There is a free day for sightseeing built into the programme too.
