 Christmas Message

Dear Friends,

Greetings from Bethlehem.

It is a very difficult and critical time we are going through these days. Hopelessness and despair are surrounding us from all sides, but we are not allowed to stay in that circle. We need to get out and start acting instead of reacting believing that the day will come to celebrate peace with justice.

More than 2000 years ago, as king Herod tried but was not able to stop the message of hope and love for the world, we believe that no one can stop it today.

By the end of this year, we complete 26 years of struggle to keep our farm from the danger of confiscation. We’ve been through many downs on our long road for justice, but the message is always clear: “Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid”.

We are  humbled to hear that our family was chosen by the World Methodist Council to receive one of the two of 2017 Peace Awards for the work we are doing at the Tent of Nations. It is a special moment for us and we are honored to receive this Peace Award. We will continue to cultivate the land and plant more seeds for a better and peaceful future with faith, love and hope. Together, we can make a difference.

We wish you all a blessed celebrations and a new year full of faith, love and hope. Let us continue our journey together.

Blessings and Salaam from the place that is keen to see Peace.
