The Evangelical churches have experienced a relative slow growth period this last year. The main factor to blame is the suppressing opposing effect of the nominal churches in Lebanon. Unfortunately some Evangelicals Pastors are beginning to be swayed toward ecumenism, and as a result the preaching is becoming lukewarm in their churches. Pray for the faithful few to persevere and multiple in order to complete the work of the church in Lebanon. Encouraging reports were transmitted to us about the effective work being done in Northern Lebanon.
