Multiple Conferences Held in Lebonon

Lebonon 2017With an extremely tight schedule, we conducted four conferences and one leadership training conference over a twenty-day period in Lebanon. We were privileged to work with nearly 300 teachers, including a group of refugee teachers working with 500 school children on the border of Lebanon and Syria. In a culture where “honor-shame” is the dominant underlying approach to problems and successes in life, many are hesitant to talk about life issues. Yet many expressed they have to talk about them, because their youth are dealing with serious pressures. They are not immune to alcohol, drugs and sexual pressures they encounter through their cellphones and on the Internet.
