Bound for Paradise: Australia

To share the gospel with tourists from the Arabian Peninsula who might have never heard the gospel while they are in Australia on holiday.

Every year in July, thousands of tourists from the Arabian Peninsula travel to Surfers Paradise in Australia to escape the heat in their home country. Many of these tourists have never heard the gospel, as the proclamation of the gospel to Muslims is prohibited in the Arabian Peninsula. There are not many local Arab believers and Christian workers are also few.

Bound for Paradise is an amazing opportunity for us to share the love of Jesus with them, so that they will return home impacted by experiencing Jesus through our faith and lives.
