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!
