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.

Ministry Details

A typical day consists of worship and prayer, training sessions, learning from each others outreach experiences and free time.

Outreaches will consist of: sharing the gospel on a personal level, DVDs & New Testaments distribution and intercession on site. The Jesus film will be showed open air. 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. During outreach, some team members will be sharing as part of a group while some team members will be praying as a group and you will alternate between you as you walk around Interlaken. There is a free day for sightseeing built into the programme.
