Programme 259 – Yohanna (part 2 of 2)

Today we return to Nazareth in northern Israel to talk to Yohanna – a Palestinian Christian and the academic dean for both the Nazareth Evangelical College and the Bethlehem Bible College.Yohanna was born and brought up in Israel – he is an Israeli citizen. As a Christian he has had to come to terms with how to respond to living in a land divided by conflict and strong feelings of injustice. So how does he respond?

Programme 356: Ann Carroll

Today I’m in a very busy coffee shop in Jerusalem talking to Ann who came to live in Israel from Texas at the age of 40 about 20 years ago. It wasn’t until her teens that Ann discovered she was Jewish and that changed everything for her. It took her a while to settle in the country but now she is involved with other believers and including meeting with Arab Christians as she now describes.

Programme 355: Suzanne & Simon Minchal

Today I’m in Jaffa, Israel, the Biblical port city that today lies just south of Tel Aviv, visiting the headquarters of Shevet Achim, a Christian organisation that makes it possible for children with serious heart defects who live in Muslim nations surrounding Israel, to come to Israeli hospitals for intricate heart surgery. This unique work was started by Jonathan Miles just over 20 years ago and in that time hundreds of children from places like Gaza, Syria, Jordan, Iraq and Kurdistan have been able to come to Israel for life saving operations.
