Ministering to the Hearts of Palestinian Women

 

I had a dream about making a magazine or a TV show for Palestinian women, but I never imagined it would actually come true. In 2012, I came to Bethlehem Bible College (BBC) in the West Bank, and the training changed my whole life. I learned more about Jesus Christ, following Him and giving Him my life.

I am blessed to have the college president’s wife, Madleine, as my spiritual mentor, so when she started the women’s ministry at the college, I attended the events she arranged each month.

I felt then that God was calling me to be part of this ministry, but it was confirmed when Madleine told me she wanted me to be part of the women’s ministry too.

I shared my dream about ministering to Palestinian women with her, and amazingly she said she had the same dream! Now we have a magazine for women and have published two issues. We are giving the magazine to 600-1,000 Palestinian women, Christian and non-Christian, every quarter, and they are reading the articles we write. We believe that God will work inside their hearts through it. We also have a monthly event for women that 50 women attend.

It’s been a blessing to be a part of the women’s ministry at BBC and publish this magazine with my mentor, Madleine. Please pray for both of our ministries, so we can influence more women from different backgrounds and show them the truth about Jesus.

I’m also thankful for my time studying at BBC and the Overseas Council scholarship that has helped me work toward my Bachelor’s degree, so thank you for your support!
