My name is Bethany Meyers, and I have been connected with the NAB my entire life. I have roots in Edmonton, Alberta, as a part of Central Baptist Church, and now Grace Baptist Church in Calgary. I am currently a student at Columbia Bible College in Abbotsford, British Columbia, working towards a degree in Practical Theology, with a major in Intercultural Studies. I am grateful to be partnering with the NAB as I prepare to do an eight-month internship with Horizons International in Beirut, Lebanon. Throughout the years, I have been impacted by several women of the Muslim faith who have shown me hospitality and generosity in friendship and sisterhood. God has placed a deep yearning in my heart to share life mutually with Muslim women and allow Christ to be a presence of love, hope, and peace through me. This internship opportunity with Horizons will be culturally immersive, with a focus on sharing the Gospel and discipling new believers who have come from the Muslim faith. For the first several months, I will be shadowing Horizon’s staff in the various ministries, while also beginning to learn the local culture and language. My greatest desire for this time is to remain in a posture of humility, continually open and attentive to the presence of God as I engage with the people I will be learning from and dwelling with. I am grateful for this invitation into the work God has been doing in the Middle East, and I thank you for praying with me as God continues to establish his Kingdom here amongst us.
