This summer, I, Anna Medearis, will be leading a trip with 4 other college students, Mandie, Sarina, Zach, and Taylor, to Israel and Palestine for a month to create another documentary.
Our next film will focus on Arab Christians and Messianic Jews in Palestine/Israel. We believe the relationships between Arab Christians and Messianic Jews creates a model of reconciliation for the rest of the Middle East. Since the hope lies in Jesus, these two groups hold the key to reconciliation. We want our film to focus on the personal stories of real people from these two groups.
As you may know, 2 summers ago, Joe Miller and I created From the Eyes of Hope, which looked at the overall conflict and found some hope. The film got a lot of attention, winning best documentary at the National Film Festival for Talented Youth and was shown in Park City, Utah during the Sundance Film Festival. We are so thankful for all who supported us to make that possible. We know God is at work there and want to be one of the ways to get the word out and help people get involved in a positive way.
In order to make this trip work and to create this film, we need your help! As a team, our total goal is $22,000. We need money to come in this week so that we can buy our plane tickets. Will you please consider supporting this vital project?
