ACCTS June 2020 Newsletter


"And I will be a father to you, and you shall be sons and daughters to me, says the Lord Almighty."
2 Corinthians 6:18, ESV


Dear friends and partners,
Greetings to you all!
Scripture reveals God to be an ideal Father: He is patient and slow to anger, compassionate, nurturing and understanding. He is a wise counselor who gently instructs us and leads us along paths of wisdom, knowledge and understanding. 
Dr. Nabeeh taught on Zoom 30 trainees from 12 Latin American countries for five weeks about understanding the Arab world's cultural values in order to mobilize them to come and be salt and light to our region. One of the trainees shared, "Today's class was powerful. It made an impact on all of us and was very challenging and encouraging. Thank you."
Not everyone who has the title of a pastor indeed has a shepherd's heart. One of the great privileges in our life is to have known so many incredible spiritual leaders who genuinely do have and exhibit a shepherd's heart. Thank you, Pr. Nabeeh, for you have been one true shepherd and father. Thank you for caring for ACCTS staff and serving God and his people lovingly and relentlessly.
Happy Father's Day!


An answered request. Thank you!
We are glad to share with you, beloved partners, that our gracious father answered our appeal for building an E-Learning platform through our precious long-term partners from the Strategic Resource Group (SRG). They have pledged to fund creating the platform and providing free training for up to two staff to prepare and maintain the implementation process. 
Thank you very much, SRG, for investing in this new field of ministry and co-partnering with the Lord and ACCTS in this endeavor pouring into the work of the kingdom. Praying for that, we celebrate the harvest together.

 Sadly, ACCTS made a hard decision to deduct 15% of the staff's salary for the next six months. $2,715 per month can help us continue to provide the staff with their regular monthly salary.
We invite you to consider how your giving can make a kingdom impact. By God's grace and your generosity, we can continue serving.



Online training coming soon
The team is as busy as a beaver with all the preparations taking place for our discipleship online journey with about 90 young women that shall start the end of June and continue throughout July. These women will embark on a journey of growth as we guide, assist and assess their growth journey. Many are seeking meaning, identity, development and influence.


Social media fruit in the lens of our beneficiaries
Interaction and involvement in this campaign on identity that took place during May and June was phenomenal. It has motivated women to share encouraging testimonies, which confirms that the message is delivered. 
They shared expressions like, "I am not my flesh. I am not my past. I am not what the society says," motivating other women to follow the page. It is rewarding to see the impact and witness of loyal advocates who believe in our mission.
"Since I began to pray for guidance before shooting the video, I asked the Lord to clarify the message he wanted me to share. He gave me this verse from Psalm 139:14, ‘I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.’ Many things happened during this period, which encouraged me to come closer to myself despite the occupations—to know me better and realize my unique identity in the Lord. He wonderfully made me not because of goodness in me, but because he perceives us as wonderful in beauty. He helped me comprehend his grace in the many circles of my life, such as the workplace, and the ministry, things I used to count ordinary but not anymore!" Sandy
"I realized that I have many important roles that I did not appreciate enough since society confines me in one role that I should get (the wife). However, I realized that this is one role, among other valuable ones. I want to appreciate every single role, give it as much attention, and enjoy it!" Please continue to invite me to such meetings because it helps me find a purpose and meaning to this period of my life full of conflicts." Angy
"I am supportive of your group. I like what you do for women. I feel good when I read your posts. The least I can do is to contribute with a comment and show my appreciation." Christine
"I was not aware that I have all these roles. I shall increase the nutrition feeding the roots of my tree of life. I ought to evaluate and reconsider the boundaries I set with others." Tania


A message of hope for widows
Despite the still present restrictions caused by Covid-19 pandemic, we seized the opportunity on the Day of Widows to share a message titled "God is with me and in me" with a group of widows and divorced women in Eastern Amman. Participants came from different religious and ethnic backgrounds representing Jordan, Syria and Iraq.
