Thank you for being a part of the ministry of Bethlehem Bible College and for following our news and prayer requests! Your partnership is a blessing to us and greatly empowers us in the work that God has called us to do.

Today is Giving Tuesday and we invite you to support the work of our college. Now more than ever we need your help to be able to cater to  the needs of our growing student body. This January 2017 we will receive more online students and we are hoping to raise $50,000 to cover the expenses of our online program and to continue encouraging the formation of Arab Christian leaders across the world and in the Holy Land. The Lord  began the ministry of Bethlehem Bible College with a simple yet significant donation of just $20 and we firmly believe every donation of  seed money that is accompanied with faithful prayer will go a long way.

We hope you enjoy reading our articles as you also learn more about Palestinian art through the work of Rana Bishara. In this newsletter,  we also have a short video of one of our students and his powerful testimony of faith in the midst of sickness.

May God richly bless you and our partnership together!  
Warmly from Bethlehem,

Rev. Dr. Jack Sara

Can you recall your favorite childhood toy or activity? Perhaps you can remember the carefree nature of running around with your friends and playing games in the yard.  For a large number of Palestinian children, this is not their reality. Many of these moments of normalcy are crushed by violence like night-raids, tear-gas, harassment and even arrests and detainment. These children grow up under the weight of the Israeli occupation, and their development is greatly effected by this ongoing violence.

“A Pot in His Hand,” a counseling and guidance ministry at Bethlehem Bible College, held its monthly event entitled “The Art of Dealing with People,” at the college. Among those in attendance were women from the Bethlehem area.

The evening began with some praise music led by Sister Patricia Hashwa, and with Rev. Dr. Jack Sara, president of the college, playing the piano.

Earlier this month, Palestine was represented at the 2 nd  Annual Middle East and North Africa Ultimate Club Championships in Amman, Jordan. Competing against eleven other teams from the region, Ultimate Palestine attended their first tournament of this kind. Being a new club in a region not typically known for playing frisbee, Ultimate Palestine used this opportunity to better understand how the game is played at a more competitive level, improve basic skills of disc handling and network with other teams in the region for future partnerships, clinics and tournaments.
