Highway Projects

I've recently just filled in my application to do a bit of mission work in Israel this summer. It's with a group called Highway Projects which was set up in 1997 as a response to invitations from the Church in the Middle East to involve Christians in practical mission work. The focus of its work is amongst disadvantaged people from across the religious divide, especially within the Arab community. This relational mission work responds to the biblical call to be sharers on Christ's behalf in the ministry of reconciliation, (2 Corinthians 5:18-20) and in the practical sharing of God's love (James 2:14-17).

The projects sound really interesting, and if my applicataion is successful it'll be a great opportunity to visit the holy lands and to meet and interact with the local communities too.

If anyone else is interested in going on one of their projects you should check out their website here for more info. There are a number of projects around israel and jordan.
