Ten Thousand Villages and Olive Wood

As part of a semester abroad a group of EMU students came to visit MCC Israel/Palestine. We met with some of the artisans who supply Ten Thousand Villages with olive wood products from here in Bethlehem. By getting to meet with the artisans, people are able to put faces to the conflict here; it becomes not the 'other' who is experiencing difficulties as a result of the conflict, but people with names and stories.
