Journey Overview

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. You will also gain a better understanding of Islamic culture and religion through:

  • personal contacts with Muslims
  • training
  • fellowship with brothers and sisters having experience in or coming from the Middle-East Thousands of international tourists come to Switzerland during the summer, including many Arabs from the Arabian Peninsula. Many have never had the opportunity to personally meet a Jesus follower or to hear the Gospel in their home country. We want to take this unique opportunity and use the freedom we have in Switzerland to share God`s love with the Arabs from the Arab Peninsula.

We recommend the two-week option. Nevertheless one week is possible.
We will continue to monitor the corona situation and reserve the right to cancel the outreach. The costs are therefore only due shortly before the outreach. We also recommend booking flights and travel tickets shortly before the outreach. OM reserves the right to adjust the program costs as exchange rates fluctuate. Your OM representative will be able to confirm program costs upon inquiry.

What To Expect

Participants will be part of an Outreach Team that serves in either the afternoon or evening shift. Each team will consist of a praying pair and an engaging pair. Participants will serve as part of a four-person team, at the book table engaging passersby or at the Jesus film showing.

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 learn as well how to start a conversation and and share Christ with Muslims. Prayer, worship and devotion are all part of the morning program.

There is a free day for sightseeing built into the program.
