Witness as Ministry: Serving God and Refugees in Beirut

Beirut, Lebanon has been wrecked by war and strife for many decades. More recently, there has been a flood of refugees from Syria and, in 2020, much of the city was leveled by an explosion in a port warehouse.

Jean Bouchebel has spent years selflessly serving the hurting and desperate in his community of Beirut. He started “Witness of Ministry” to provide supplies and hope for the poor, the orphans, and the refugees, because he feels compelled by God to love those around him.
