Back in 2012, I wrote about a conference I had the privilege of documenting. It was called At the Crossroads and took its vision from the last verses of Isaiah 19. The chapter ends with all of the Middle East — from modern Iran down to Egypt — worshiping the God of Israel with Israel.

It was during that time that I introduced you to Pastor Ali, the man Jesus met in Mecca, and Tass, a Palestinian who once drove Yassar Arafat around.

The second such conference was held this year, again at Christ Church Jerusalem. It’s part of the busyness that has kept me away from writing. I am just stopping to tell you about this gathering a month later.

I, again, photographed the conference, but another was tasked with writing about it. Charles Gardner, a journalist from the UK, wrote several stories chronicling the weeklong meeting.

You can read Gardner’s stories and see some of my photos at the conference website: middleeastcrossroads.wordpress.com. Here are some of the headlines:

I hope these stories encourage you, show you that the God of Israel is not dead and is faithful to draw people to him in even the darkest nations.
