Posted by Robin Brumley on

There are at least 40 different nationalities in the camp so there are many languages spoken here. As far as I can tell, English, Arabic, and French are the primary languages used for communication around camp. But beyond that, there is a common camp lingo that has...

Posted by Lori Brady on

  Isn’t it uncanny that God knows our needs before we do? This morning I woke up tired, had the beginning of a sore throat and felt depleted. At 7:45am, Jeff handed out a laminated card with two prayers, the Prayer of St Francis and the Prayer of St. Patrick to our day shift team. It...

Posted by Jerry Nuernberger on

  Reggae Gospel seems like a fitting title for my experience as one of a two man late shift one evening at the camp called The Olive Grove. The camp consists of numerous eight man tents, and a large tent dormitory all among olive trees. It is on the perimeter of the main Moria facility...

Impressions From the Landing Zone

Posted by Samantha Andrade on

This photo made my heart stop today. It is far too much information for one human to process so quickly. Personally, it will take me too much time to actually understand, let alone comprehend what has been happening in this place. This is especially intense for me, because it is all happening...
