I am a retired Physician Assistant who for the next 3 months (Feb.-Apr. 2009) will be serving with a group of internationals as an Ecumenical Accompanier in Palestine and Israel. We will be living and working with Israeli and Palestinian peacemakers in the occupied West Bank. Together we will stand in solidarity against the occupation, and advocate for reconciliation with a just, secure and lasting peace.
I am truly grateful to my family and the many friends whose love, support, encouragement and prayers have helped shape this decision. And I especially thank those who generously took on some of my responsibilities so that I could leave to serve in this way.
It is written that ‘there is a time for every purpose under heaven’. This is my ‘time to speak’. I invite you to make this journey with me.
