Middle East

I have spent the last three years working in a township in South Africa with a project that aims to give young people a purpose and passion. At the start of 2020 I transitioned to the Middle East to learn Arabic full time for a period of up to two years. This is preparation for aiming to work in an unreached people group in the region. My heart is to work with those who have fled conflict/war or are part of a marginalised sector of society. I love to work with kids and alongside families, discipling and encouraging them to have hope in Jesus. I first visited the Middle East 12 years ago where I worked with Muslim families who brought their children to a centre for disabled children, and over the years had many opportunities to visit the region. I’m excited to be based long-term in the region now, but also have a steep learning curve ahead of me!

Please pray for me as I settle into a new environment, learn a new language, and a new community. If you would like to receive my newsletter, please email laura_ek@outlook.com
