Julia Fisher talks to David Ortiz, originally from Puerto Rico, today he is married to Leah and together they pastor a Messianic congregation in Ariel in central Israel, close to the West Bank. Ariel is surrounded by Palestinian villages where the population is entirely Muslim and over the years David has visited many of these villages and distributed Bibles. As a result, there are now many believers in Jesus coming from a Muslim background. I asked David to describe what life is like for them.
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.
