Olive Harvest Accompaniment, and Internet difficulties for Team in WB

The MPT Fall 2011 team is safe and well and settled in at our home base location in the West Bank this week.

They have been meeting with local folks and our contacts in the area to renew connections and let folks know we are back on the ground for the coming season.

They have begun accompaniment for the Olive harvest time, helping to reduce the threat of violence when asked to go into the fields with Palestinians picking their crops.

For the time being, the demands of this busy time and very limited access to Internet means it will be a few more days at least until the team can post full first hand reports of their work. Keep watching as they will be up soon!

To read more about what Olive Harvest time is like, search "olive harvest" in the search box above for last year's Fall posts.

Thank you for your continued support, and leave your comments for the team on the blog comments section!
