Hope Unexpected

Hope UnexpectedMike Bassous

Dr Mike Bassous is visiting NIOur television screens are full of images and stories from the Middle East, and our hearts break for those people we see who have lost everything and struggle to find meaning amongst the rubble and destruction. But what stories are we not hearing? What about the stories of hope?

We are thrilled that Mike will be spending time with us here in Northern Ireland, sharing his story of hope. Take this opportunity to come along and hear his first-hand account of what the reality of life is in the Middle East. The challenge that he brings might shake us somewhat, but the stories of hope that he has to share will amaze you. Somehow, in the midst of war and an atmosphere of persecution, God is still at work. His Kingdom is still advancing.

We would love for you to come and hear Mike’s message from the Middle East. There are a number of events happening in different parts of the country. Pick which would suit you best.

Mike has led the ministry of the Bible Society in Lebanon since 2004 and has a strategic interest in supporting Bible Society work in Iraq and Syria.  He works closely with Bible Society colleagues in the Gulf region, and spends much of his energy ministering to refugees.  With all of this experience he is well placed to share his stories of life as a Christian in this turbulent region, stories of how God is at work through the challenges and opportunities faced by the Church in the Middle East.
