"The approaching Easter celebration and the services leading up to it have created an atmosphere of reflection and anticipation here," writes Yvonne Turner from Palestine, in a blog post on the California-Nevada Annual Conference website at cnumc.org.
Turner is a member of the Conference Board of Missions' Israel-Palestine Task Force. While serving as an individual Volunteer in Mission at Hope School in Palestine she is offering her observations in the form of occasional blog posts.
Today she writes, "As I witness these many religious traditions I am also aware of the suffering of the local Christians …. Jesus' last week was one of joy as well as agony and Christians here can surely identify with both of these sentiments."
