Seventh-day Adventist work in the early 1900s was conducted on both sides of the Jordan River from Jerusalem, headquarters of the Palestine-Transjordan Mission. In 1913 Ibrahim El-Khalil, one of the earlier converts to Christianity in Lebanon, held evangelistic meetings there but was forced to leave a year later due to World War I. The seeds had been planted, however, and as a result of his work, Michael Hilal El-Haddad began to keep the Sabbath and pay tithe. He is believed to be the first known Jordanian man to accept the Adventist message.
