As the holidays arrive, everyone’s providing volunteer opportunities, and the global church is no exception. Bethlehem Bible College needs volunteers in many areas (around the year) and offers workers the chance to fellowship with Palestinian brothers and sisters in Christ in return.
For three years, Kamila has volunteered with Bethlehem Bible College (BethBC). She moved to Bethlehem from Indiana in 2016 as a coordinator with a different organization bringing young adults to Palestine. As she made friends and connections, someone asked her to help out as an English officer in the Communications and Development Department at BethBC.
There she quickly connected with her team and caught the vision of the college. Suddenly the Church was bigger and more complex than what she knew before. Politically, Palestine is a complicated place, and Palestinian Christians often get stuck in the middle.
“To see a faith that’s had to be worked through suffering and hard times that’s been really beautiful and influential on my own faith, but then I see how that affects groups that come and meet with the college, the different leaders we’ve had over the last 40 years of its existence [it] has also been just a really beautiful thing to witness.”
Seeing a Bigger Picture
Kamila says it has been an honor to work alongside people who are the descendants of the early Church and who still struggle with communicating the truth of Christ to the hostile world around them. Her time at BethBC has allowed her to see the Gospel message in action.
