documentary film during a speaking tour (locations listed below). Marthame and Elizabeth are Presbyterian missionaries who have spent the last three years living in Zababdeh in the Occupied West Bank, a village a few miles south of Nazareth. They work with the educational system in the West Bank, which is on the verge of collapse due to the devastating effect of the occupation on the economy. They work tirelessly to raise awareness of the plight of Palestinian Christians.

Marthame and Elizabeth Sanders will be sharing their personal narrative and their short documentary film during a speaking tour (locations listed below).  Marthame and Elizabeth are Presbyterian missionaries who have spent the last three years living in Zababdeh in the Occupied West Bank, a village a few miles south of Nazareth.  They work with the educational system in the West Bank, which is on the verge of collapse due to the devastating effect of the occupation on the economy.  They work tirelessly to raise awareness of the plight of Palestinian Christians. 

Much of the Sanders’ work is centered on the Latin Patriarchate School.  Zababdeh is 75% Christian, and the school serves ~700 Christian and Muslim boys and girls from Preschool through the 12th grade, drawn from the region around the school.  Father Aktham Hijazin (appearing on some dates with the Sanders) is the Principal of this school.

The Sanders will appear at the cities listed below during the months of May and June.  If there is a city near you, we encourage you to visit the following website in order to get complete details on the time and location of the talk.  There is also a great deal of additional material about the Sanders and their work at this website.
