The Middle East
The Middle East includes parts of southwest Asia (Iran, Iraq, Israel, Saudi Arabia) and North Africa (Egypt, Libya) as well as Turkey. Arabic is the language of the majority of the population and Islam is the dominant religion, although Judaism and Christianity also originated there. Frequent conflict, some of it ethnically based, undercuts political and economic stability and often affects global prospects for peace.
The majority of Global Ministries’ work in the region is focused in Israel/Palestine. It includes education, human rights projects and services for people who are disabled and children.
