Why are you in partnership with Danmission?

For the Christian Church in the Middle East, it is very important to be in partnership with Danmission, which has a long history of work in the Middle East and has helped to shape and create the church there. Through the Christian Church in the Middle East, Western churches can gain a better understanding of what it is like to live alongside Muslims. At the same time, we who live in the Middle East gain a better understanding of the West, and are inspired to shape our church in new ways.
