Julia Fisher talks to Jonathan Miles. By profession he’s a journalist and 15 or so years ago, he was working in Jerusalem in that capacity. But one day his life changed for ever when he was asked to help a mother with a desperately sick child. That encounter resulted in him starting an organisation called Shevet Achim. I met Jonathan at their offices in Jerusalem recently and he shared his story.
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.
