Our teams, pastor partners, and ministries are deeply committed to restoring lives by the power of the Gospel. Our aim is to serve, educate, and meet real physical and spiritual needs of deprived people in the Middle East. Your help makes an eternal difference. (All donations are tax deductible.)


Your gift provides relief to impoverished believers in local churches across Lebanon as well as Gospel discipleship to those who desire to spread the Good News.


Join us as we pray for those who are suffering, but more than that, join us in making a real difference in the lives of those who are “the least of these” by making a donation. Thank you!

What people are saying …

“Our church has been partnering with Tony and Souzan in their ministry for seven years. Many in our church participate in the gathering of vital supplies and the logistics of shipping them to Lebanon. Regularly taking part in meeting the needs of those who desperately need it has been a great experience for us.”
— David Morris, Senior Pastor, Cedar Run Community Church, Oak Hill, VA
“For the last six years Wellspring Church has been a proud partner of Shining Hope International. Because of the great gospel need in Lebanon, their influence continues to grow. What started as a small school, has grown into a holistic ministry that is reaching entire communities. It is a privilege to play a small role in helping them fulfill their mission to make disciples.”
— Scott Smith, Lead Pastor, Wellspring Church, Webb City, MO
