During this worldwide crisis, the devaluation of the Lebanese currency and border restrictions and fear will reduce the number of international students and only further contribute to the seminary’s precarious situation.
In an update from NEST’s President, Dr. George Sabra, he expressed his hope and tremendous gratitude for all of the support NEST has received thus far in response to the crisis:
“Your response to our crisis has been overwhelming. I am truly moved by the expressions of sympathy, concern and support which my office has received in a shower of e-mails. To know that NEST has so many true friends and supporters is a great source of comfort and encouragement.”
“We have hope that we can pull through with God’s help and the support of our network of friends. After all, this institution made it through two World Wars and crises in the region, including a 15-year-old war in Lebanon.”
We can help NEST continue to shine the light of Christ in a troubled world. International Ministries will match your gifts, both large and small, up to $50,000.
