More than one million refugees have flooded into Lebanon because of the civil war raging in neighbouring Syria. Pastor Bassam recently opened a new church near the Syrian border to minister to refugees and others in that region.
After the church’s initial service, Pastor Bassam was summoned to appear before local officials who questioned him about his evangelistic activities. He tried to answer their questions, stating that he does not force anyone to come to the services or change their beliefs.
Pastor Bassam requests prayers that the church will be allowed to operate without interference.
He also asks for prayer for his wife, who has been suffering from an illness.
