THE STORY:

"Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God."
Matthew 5:9

As I have continued to grow as a Christian, I have felt more and more convicted by God's call to reject violence and to live out Jesus’ call to be peacemakers. One of the ways I wish to explore this call is to serve with members of a International Christian Peacekeeping delegation to Israel and Palestine July 19th - August 1.

On this delegation, we will learn from and dialogue with full-time CPT staffmembers, government officials, NGOs, and the active, nonviolent movements throughout Israel/Palestine. We will express our support and solidarity with the Palestinian Christians suffering in the West Bank. We will document human rights abuses and publicly witness the Gospel and pray with the people of Israel and Palestine. We will return home with personal stories of the relationships that we have developed and the way in which nonviolence is being practiced in a place where peace sometimes seems hopeless.

I am both nervous and excited about this trip, and are asking for your help in several ways:

Your accompaniment – I want to be in dialogue with you about these issues, to hear your perspectives, experiences, and your own personal sense of vocation. I want to be able to share my experiences with you. And I’d be very happy to share with you or your community my experiences after I return. It would be an honor to share this journey with you.

Your prayers – I ask you to pray for the people of Israel/Palestine who have experienced decades violence. Pray for interfaith cooperation and understanding, for renewed commitment to nonviolence, and for the end to senseless killing and hatred.. I also ask that you pray for the delegation – for our safety, for open hearts, meaningful experiences and dialogue, and opportunities to share about our time upon return.

Your finances – By partnering with myself and with CPT, you’ll be sustaining the efforts of women and men who are taking Christ’s message of peace around the world into places where violence is a way of life. Your support makes you a fellow peacemaker in CPT’s work.

This is a life changing opportunity to witness the Gospel and to carry out Christs' vision of nonviolence to the world. If however, I am unable to raise the necessary money by the date of the trip, I will use it towards the expenses of another mission trip. In case of such an event, I will not hesitate to let all of you know.

God bless and thanks so much!
