Youth Desert Encounter: We are excited to be taking a group of 40 Israeli and Palestinian youth and youth leaders to the Negev desert this April 16-19. Pray for their safety, the relationships these youth will form, and for the time they will spend in the desert worshipping, learning from the story of the Good Samaritan, riding camels and learning to interact with each other
A Curriculum of Reconciliation: Thursday, April 10, we will be launching our Curriculum of Reconciliation in Arabic in Bethlehem. Our Curriculum of Reconciliation is a unique resource for intergroup conflict developed after 20 years’ experience in reconciliation. More than 10 local Palestinian organizations will gain exposure to our approach to reconciliation through this special event.
Women’s Training: This past April 4-5, we held our spring national women’s conference. Fifty-five women attended, and we were blessed to see many in our group use their talents among us. For example, a few of our teachers were recently trained in teaching the Musalaha curriculum, and used these new skills to teach some of the sessions over the course of the weekend. And countless others served each other, helping with registration, transportation and facilitation. This was a wonderful snapshot of what we seek to do at Musalaha – train people to serve each other. The women received training in Remembering Rightly and Listening. The women also help a bazaar to help raise funds for children in need. Thank you for keeping them in your prayers. We hope to share with you a detailed report soon.
