The tour revealed a beauty of the people and their land, By Paul Welch

By Paul Welch

Having visited Palestine once and reading the news about Palestine, I thought I had an adequate understanding of the plight of the Palestinians. However, the tour through Jenin, Zababdeh, Nablus, Jericho, Hebron, Bethlehem and Jerusalem revealed a beauty of the people and their land that I had missed. The struggles of the Palestinians are more intense than I realized. Their inner strength to match these struggles stands testament to their faith, hope and love. These attributes were displayed at every stop, every meal and every interaction we had.  I pray to Our Father that his children might realize their common goodness.
