We're looking forward to having Majd and his family at THE ARK this summer.
Here's a bit about them in their own words:
"Eman and I are very excited about the opportunity we have to spend time at THE ARK and share our story. We’ve been married for almost 5 years and we have two boys, Jonathan (2.5 y/o) and Andrew (7 m/o). We come from small towns in the Galilee, Israel, I’m from Eilabun and she’s from Tua’an. The churches we attended growing up are sister churches started by the same person, so we knew each other for a long time before we got married.
Before we were married we had several opportunities to serve the Lord. I was involved in music ministry through a choir based in Nazareth, prison ministry during Christmas time, and leading worship on different occasions in various places. I’ve been playing music in my church since I was eight, and leading worship for the past 8 years as well. When I was sixteen years old, the Lord put a passion in me for youth ministry. And in 2007 He opened a door for me to attend a Bible College in Phoenix, AZ for four years majoring in Christian Ministry with focus on Youth Ministry. Since I returned to my town in 2011 I’ve been leading the youth ministry at church as well.
Eman and I served together during summer camps in Israel for a few years and her love for youth ministry and young people was the first thing that attracted me to her. She was very involved in the youth ministry at her church before we got married, and she continues to be a mentor to many girls not only from our church but other churches as well. She studied cinema and photography and is a very talented photographer. I work as a communications manager for the Christian HolyLand Foundation which does ministry through a local Israeli organisation called Grace Ministries. We both have full-time jobs and hope to one day be able to give all of our time to serve our Lord by loving on His young people and help them grow in His love."
