##FULL## Salamu Aleikum Switzerland Interlaken (Budget accommodation)
5 Aug 2023
19 Aug 2023
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.
This is a two-week outreach. Nevertheless, one week is possible from the 5th until the 12th of August.
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. Price excludes flights, insurance and is subject to change according to the exchange rate.
Individuals applying must be 18 or over.
