My snapshot this week contains only one lad rummaging through a drum of refuse for any salvage. A sobering reflection against the backdrop of the Israeli wall as it severs the road through the Palestinian community at Abu-Dis, of the impact of conflict in a land which should know the meaning of Shalom.
I have in the last few days been privileged to meet many individuals working to bring transformation whether Mohammed overseeing the planting of 11,000 olive trees (so far) offering a livelihood to farmers or Sister Martha in Bethany as director of an overflowing school with 480+ children.
Please pray for:
the land of Israel and Palestine for a lasting peace
for those individuals in the Holy Land committed to bringing about transformation in communities
that we may offer our communities a hope rooted in Christ which brings reconciliation and peace
