Julia Fisher talks to Salim Anfous – Recently I visited Bethlehem, which is in the West Bank and where the majority of the people are Muslim. There is however, a tiny evangelical community of Christians there and Salim Anfous is the youth pastor in one of the evangelical churches in the town. He was born in Saudi Arabia but came with his family to live in Bethlehem when he was a teenager. Salim is a man with a vision to help the young Palestinian Christians in his church to deepen their faith in Jesus.
Our aim is to build bridges… To build bridges of understanding and support, in a spirit of reconciliation, between believers (both Jewish and Arab) in the Holy Land (Israel and the Palestinian Areas) and Christians worldwide.
