Tales of need and despair abound in Lebanon. The currency has lost 90-percent of its value since 2019, and more than 75-percent of the population lives in poverty. More Lebanon headlines here.

Yet, hope remains. God is moving, and hearts are changing amid Lebanon’s desperation. “We have seen a ripening of hearts,” Pierre Houssney of Horizons International says.

“So many people are open to the Gospel. We’ve seen genuine spiritual thirst.”

As traditional barriers crumble, people open up to the hope of Christ. One man in Beirut, who worked at a prestigious real estate company, asked if Horizons could help him. “He very shyly asked me where he could sign up for a food portion because he works on commission and has no salary,” Houssney says.

“That’s unheard of in Lebanon. People are so proud of their rich lifestyle, and they would never admit they need help.”
