MELM Reaching out to Students

Schools:

The MELM audience relations team represented by Ms. Katia Sahyouni and Mr. Mark Rahmeh visited schools and gave devotions. We shared the Bible message with students and we told them a Bible story “The Good Samaritan” and we trained them on acting it. The students were very happy to listen to the story and acting it in the same time. In addition, we distributed “The Good Samaritan” story book to them so they can always remember the message of love that Jesus gave in this story.

 

Ministry in Hadath Area-Lebanon

MELM and a group of volunteers organized a Red Boots show in Hadath area, where many kids attended and enjoyed the DVD story. They were impressed by the Christian message that they saw in the movie. Also they were very happy to receive the Red Boots stories, which we distributed, so they can always remember that Jesus came to earth because He loves them and to save them.

Moreover, the MELM team taught a hymn about Jesus’ love to the children, it was taken from a bible verse “But Jesus called the children to him and said: Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.” (Luke 18:16) The children were so joyful to learn the hymn and sing it again and again.

MELM outreach to the Bedouins was implemented in a holistic way that had a comprehensive impact on their spiritual lives and physical needs. MELM met the needs of the children during this cold winter and distributed hats, gloves and scarves to the kids who were very cheerful and uplifted to receive the gifts. They understood that the gifts were from Jesus who cares about them, wants to keep them warm and in good health in the cold winter.

The MELM team visited the Bedouins in Bekaa valley, where they shared the message of Christ through Bible stories and hymns. The story was about Bartimaous the blind that was healed by Jesus. The kids were very happy to listen to the story and learn that Jesus has the power to heal. They also participated in the story by acting it in the same time.

MELM Team in a Holistic Mission to the Bedouins

The Bedouin are known for their nomadic, tent dwelling lifestyles. The tent, an important part of the Bedouins survival, needs to be flexible and it must be lightweight. They move either constantly or seasonally, earning a living as stockbreeders or tradesmen. Bedouins still roam the Lebanese interior but their way of life is rapidly dying out with urbanization. Economically it is increasingly difficult as herds of livestock have little value in the industrial age and pickup trucks are replacing camels for transport.
