This weekend Khalil Sleiman, World Vision‘s Humanitarian Response director, will visit First Presbyterian Church to discuss his extensive work with World Vision in the Middle East, most recently with the Syria Response Team.
According to an announcement Sleiman brings first hand knowledge of the current situation in the Middle East, and draws upon his own childhood experience of war and displacement, as he comes from a small village in southern Lebanon and lost his home and land during the Lebanese Civil War.
“As a committed Christ follower, he also will bring stories and perspectives from Christians who live in the region, and offer opportunities for us to partner with World Vision’s work through prayer, engagement, advocacy, and sacrificial giving,” that announcement reads.
His discussion will be at the church, 318 S Cedar St, Spokane, Washington 99201, Sunday (April 30) at 7 p.m.
