Description: In Bethlehem, the city where our Savior was born, the less than 15% Christian population who remain are suffering persecution at the hands of radical Islam. Many are without jobs and provisions for their family due to their faith in Christ. This cross is your way to GIVE HOPE! It is hand made out of olive wood straight from the Holy Land - working with one of the largest employers of Christians in Bethlehem.
In purchasing this gift you are helping to provide sustainable income for Christians in the Middle East, and giving them hope to be able to remain AND sustain in the city of their birth and heritage. Additional proceeds from this cross are going back into efforts for sustaining Christians.
We believe that as we sustain the Christian Arab presence in the Middle East, we can then see the spread of the gospel through our fellow believers in territories that are otherwise unreachable. And we pray as you hold this cross in your hand, that you will remember to pray for the persecuted believers worldwide whose only hope is through clinging to the cross. Thank you for GIVING HOPE!
