Speaker: Areej Masoud
The situation in current day Palestine is dire. Sadly this reality where access to basic necessities such as healthcare, education, water, shelter, freedom of movement and economic security is either ignored or is deliberately misrepresented.
Palestinian Christians rarely have their voices heard above the ongoing tensions. This is your chance to take a step off the tourist track and main stream media reporting, to go beyond the Holy Land tours of biblical sites and get up close and personal with a fellow sister in Christ. Hear exactly why life is so dire and the relentless, dehumanising plight facing Palestinian Christians. Learn ways that you can extend the love of Christ and offer hope for a future worth celebrating.
