Grace Al Zoughbi Arteen – Palestinian Arab Christian

“To be part of the Peacemakers project meant that I can share my story! Many people are not aware of the existence and the suffering of the Palestinian Church. As a Christian woman called to be a light in my nation I desire that my voice would be heard so that the wider church and the Western world can better imagine what life is like in Bethlehem, and that they can pray for us accordingly!”

Grace lives with her husband Michael and her large extended family in Bethlehem. She is a lecturer in Biblical Studies at Bethlehem Bible College and heads the BA department. Grace was born and raised in Bethlehem, the city where Christ was born. Now a part of Palestine in the West Bank, Bethlehem is an important part of her story—one of overcoming hardship and adversity through faith in Christ.
