As we listen to Raed and Manar Awabdeh’s story, we cannot help but think of Esther and her story-
For such a time as this
One of the desires we have as Christians is for God to use us, to use our gifts, our talents, and our resources to make an impact for the Kingdom. This was Esther’s desire and, so it is the desire and passion of our brother and sister in Sacramento.
Raed and Manar Awabdeh, leaders of the Arab American Learning Center in the Central Pacific District, are in the midst of “such a time” in our current world events…they clearly have been prepared and placed exactly in the position God has intended. And now events across the world are placing Arab Muslim refugee families right into their midst- their community of Sacramento, CA.
When the Awabdehs first started out in Sacramento there was not one Arabic family in the area. But now, there are over 1,500 families in the immediate area.
With the refugee crisis in the Middle East and Europe, they are experiencing the hand of God setting over 12,000 Arab Muslims in Sacramento! Right into the very community Raed and Manar have been pouring into and building bridges for the last 20 years.
The perfect property of 3.38 acres has become available with a school building including all the proper permits ready for them to move in with their already established Arabic American Learning Center! A property like this is not easy to find in a community, and if it is available, it is usually attached to a shopping mall.
Urgent Request with a Mid-January Deadline!
God is giving all of us the opportunity and privilege to join them in such a time as this. Please watch this video:
