MISSION CAPSULES: Gifts to Presbyterians Sharing ... support and strengthen connections with international mission partners. The PCC has had a close relationship with the Near East School of Theology in Beirut, Lebanon for thirty years. This has included the presence of personnel teaching at the seminary, visits to the school to learn about issues in Middle Eastern theological education and financial support for special initiatives. At the 2015 General Assembly, Dr. George Sabra, President of NEST, asked that we continue to partner with Christians in the Middle East. "Stay related to us," he said. "Stay aware of what is happening to us; encourage us and support us morally, spiritually and materially. And above all, keep us in your prayers to God almighty, the Lord of our lives and of all history, in whose love and mercy our ancestors, our parents and grandparents have always trusted."
