This is a non-profit educational organization. Its purpose is to “perpetuate and promote the rich heritage of the Ramallah family and their descendants in the diaspora.” As their brochure states, “This program hopes to foster an educational bond between the United States and Palestine by providing opportunities to help propel cultural and social interaction.”
I will have the opportunity to see such cities as Jaffa, Haifa, Nazareth, and Capernaum. A trip to Jerusalem will include the famous sites of the Temple Mount, the Church of the Pater Noster, and the Garden of Gethsemane.
We will also tour refugee camps, surrounding villages, and meet with the mayor of Ramallah and other city officials.
Would you consider praying for me as I will be (perhaps) the only Evangelical Christian in the group of eight or so? I’ll give a report when I return home.
