Jonny Billitt in Israel Pt1
Greetings to you all, my name is Jonny Billitt and I'm from Cambridge England. I am currently blessed to be spending ten months living in Jerusalem studying with Israel College of the Bible.
The Isrelate team have kindly given me the opportunity to relay what life is really like behind the media vale, which hides the true quality of this land. Along side my studies I am able to visit all over Israel experiencing all the diverse mix of cultures that exist here today.
I am currently living in Gilo, a Jerusalem neighbourhood, which seems in the middle of some political tension at the moment but it is surrounded by some wonderful views on all side of both Jerusalem and Bethlehem...
Although I will do my best to describe my experiences in some short posts, I would also like to answer any of your questions regarding the land the culture and the people so please feel free to express yourself and be as honest or challenging as you wish and I'll do my best to answer, hopefully through my learning I may be able to offer insight into your questions.
While I am here I hope to try and convey to you the experience of living along side both Arab and Israelis, the wonderful mix of cultures in the land and try encourage you to visit a wonderful place mixed with many cultures, climates and countryside!
