Dear Family and Friends,
I had the privilege of teaching 14 lectures of Manarah Latino “Training Workers for the Kingdom” for about 30 Latinos representing 8 countries from South and Central America. I was encouraged by their teachable spirit and desire to serve the Lord.
The course was held in Panama City, Panama.

Pray for the impact to result in building the Kingdom. 

Pr. Nabeeh and Ruba Abbassi

Group Therapy Activity

Trauma induced by war leads to a wide range of psychological consequences and disorders that can be quite disabling for individuals and their families.
In that light, ACCTS Irbid Community Center (ICC) conducted group therapy sessions for ladies suffering from trauma to give them tools to personally deal with the issue, and also to cope with their existing situation.
I.S.R.A is a young Syrian refugee of 17 years old. She is one of the ladies who attended the sessions and received one-on-one psychological counseling services. She was 10-years-old when the war broke out in her village; she tells her story and remembers the frightening events. These horrible events affected I.S.R.A. to her core. However, there was a marked improvement at the end of the counseling sessions, according to the mother's observation and I.S.R.A herself.   Learn more


The equality that women demand is not only an issue between them and men, but it is often an issue among women themselves. There is a common saying, "A woman   is woman's   worst   enemy", but we say that "Your strength comes from her strength."
This was the topic of a competition that AWT has organized and launched on Social Media. To serve as a platform for anyone who has a message to the Arab woman. A message stemming from respect for her, and the desire to enable her to break every barrier that hinders her from being better; in order to be as the Creator wanted her to be.
5 videos were nominated to win and were published on social media for voting. The winning video was from Gaza, Palestine. And the best-empowering comment has won a prize, too. People’s interaction was phenomenal and very much influential!

Protect Your Rights

Many Syrian women refugees in Jordan lost their legal rights due to their ignorance of the Jordanian law, for anyone who lives in Jordan is subject to the Jordanian law. Aware of the seriousness of this matter, ICC conducted a lecture with the aim to empower women with the knowledge of the Jordanian Personal Status Law.
The participants expressed their profound gratitude towards the initiative and the opportunity to be enlightened on such an important topic.  Learn more


Prayer for:

.  AWT is facing a major deficit this year of $60 K. Pray for provision in order to proceed with our ministry plan.

.  The economic situation in Jordan which is burdening us, more especially affecting our youth leaving them unemployed and slaves to lots of bondages, such as drugs, extremism and other acts of violence.
