“Walk the bear!”

“Walk the bear!”

Israeli and Palestinian team up for tourists!

“Lord, let more and more people wake up to the situation in Israel and look past tribalism and separation in order to see those created in your Image staring back at them from the other side of man-made walls of hate and fear. Give your Church in the area the ability to discern the truth, reject folk-theology and radiate the love of Messiah to ALL people.
