A former tour participant reflects upon his experience with MEJDI Tours:
Hope springs eternal. This week, as President Barack Obama makes the first visit of his presidency to Israel, Palestine, and Jordan, I am hopeful. I am hopeful because he visits the land where Jesus performed his miracles, a land where the unexpected seems to be commonplace. I am hopeful because the most powerful person on Earth is going to one of the most volatile regions on the planet to listen. Not to bring answers or solutions, but to listen to people from both sides of the conflict. I am hopeful, because I know what this kind of activity has done in my own life and in the lives of many others.
