(Level I – 2014)
I have a background of much travel overseas, both personal and with our family under sail. We have seen wealth and we have seen poverty. We have seen how a water supply should never be taken for granted, and how our behavior in a foreign land can be viewed differently due to local customs and lack of knowledge. I believe very deeply in the need to negotiate not fight one’s way out of any situation. At some point I’d like to return to the West Bank as a member of the Christian Peacemaker Teams. Although they do of course have their own training, I think this will be especially useful as background preparation.
