Ministry Partner Information:

Water of Life teams partner with Youth for Christ (YFC) and Global Hope Strategies (GHS) in Lebanon. Serving with YFC team members, WOLCC will be assisting YFC staff and volunteers through their work with schools, refugees from Iraq and Syria, and Youth Center Ministries. The team will give direct Gospel messages in school assemblies, outreach clubs, and campus ministries. WOLCC will also serve in the Bekaa Valley with GHS around the needs of Syrian Refugees through on-going sports ministry among young men, arts/crafts along with English lessons for the young ladies, and camps for English learning and possible overnights with older teens so they can play games, and get some time away from the dreary camp settings they live in.
