Connect & Understand

‘What is God doing in Israel and the Palestinian areas today and why should we care?’

That is the question we seek to find answers to by talking to believers in Jesus who live there today, both Jews and Arabs/Palestinians. By hearing their stories alongside reading the Bible we can better understand God’s plan of salvation for every nation of the world!

Understanding Modern Israel

Filmed during our OTRF tour in April 2018, you can follow our journey as we visited important sites, both ancient and modern, and met believers on the way, both Jewish and Arab/Palestinian. We were seeking answers to the question, ‘What is God doing in Israel despite the conflicts in the region?’ And this film is the result of what we saw and heard.
