The Unrest is Now Personal
For years we have heard about the unrest in the Holy Land and how it affects the people who live there. Of course it is something that we know is real but it is difficult to become emotionally attached to the issues.
That changed with the trip to Israel and the West Bank. We met people; we made friends; we now care about their lives. One of our favorite people was the driver of our bus. A Palestinian, living in the West Bank, who struggles to make a life for a family he dearly loves. In Bethany, we met his little girl and saw the love he has for her. All he wants is peace and the ability to have a secure future. They deserve it.
Please pray for peace in the Holy Land.
