The Olive Tree Radio Programme

This week: hear Elias

Programme 421 – Elias

Whilst in Israel recently, recording interviews for this programme, I visited Bethlehem, which is in the West Bank, to meet a Christian from Gaza called Elias. Gaza is frequently in the news and is one of the most controversial places on earth. The majority of people who live there are Muslims – but, there are some Christians, although their numbers are fast diminishing. This interview is one man’s story of life in Gaza, finding faith there, before leaving.

The next OTRF tour to Israel will be from Tuesday 30th April to 9th May 2019

the main reason for the tour will be to meet local believers, people we work closely with, both Jewish and Arab/Palestinian believers. As well we will travel around the country visiting many key Biblical and historical sites to help us understand modern Israel and what God is doing there today.
The tour will be led by Norman and Julia Fisher with Ann Pawson.
The outline itinerary and booking form can be found by visiting our Tour page.

Radio Programmes

‘The Olive Tree’ is a weekly programme. Each programme asks the simple question, ‘What is God doing in Israel and the Palestinian Areas today?’ and the answers will be provided by believers living in the Holy Land, both Jews and Arabs, as well as by others who know the situation well.

Understanding Modern Israel

Since its start in 2008 the purpose of The Olive Tree Reconciliation Fund has always been to build bridges of understanding and support, in a spirit of reconciliation, between believers in the Holy Land – both Jews and Arabs – with Christians worldwide.
