Warm greetings from Bethlehem Bible College!

May has brought us warm weather and many new stories and opportunities we want to share with you! Our very own Gabriel Hanna has written a devotional book that has since been published! Gabi is featured in this month's "Meet One of Us." In line with this news, you'll also have to check out our video of our most recent book launch by Gabriella Baddour, one of our Tour Guide Program graduates. 

Festivities and commemorations were also in order for the month of May. Two of our volunteers held a joint birthday party where those in attendance donated money to charity instead of giving gifts. Read more about this and the neat initiatives that the funds were given to! 

As many of you are also aware, May 15th is the day that Palestinians commemorate the Nakba. Check out our video "Surviving Nakba" to learn more about this time in our past, but also as it endures into our present as we hope to change our future. 

Lastly, but certainly not least, a women's retreat hosted by several ministries gathered this month to discuss spirituality and coming against barriers of the Enemy with the armor of God. Be sure to get the full scoop on this fruitful time!

We thank you for your continued support and encouragement. We pray this message finds you refreshed and full of life.

Gabriel is the Media Director at BBC. He is very productive and dedicated to his job. He recently wrote a book entitled, Palestinian Heartbeat. I interviewed Gabriel to talk about his new book and career in general.

Gabriel Jacob Hanna, an original Bethlehemite, married to Taghreed, and together they have two beautiful boys, Amir, aged seven-years-old and Nicola, five-years-old. From student, to staff, to the Media Director at BBC, God took him through a difficult yet amazing journey.


"A Pot in His Hand” and “Daughters of the King” ministries, in cooperation with Kensington Church, organized a women’s conference in Tayba, a village in northern Palestine, entitled, “By Faith, We Will Break the Arrows.” The conference was based on Ephesians 6:16: “In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.”

Teaming up to share a festive birthday party, Bethlehem Bible College volunteers Kay Munayer and Walter Brynjolfson dedicated May 3rd to a night of fun, games and fellowship all directed toward raising funds to go toward two different charities.
