I will never forget our handover ceremony on 22 September 2011 in the Church of the Redeemer in East Jerusalem. This prayer was used:
O God of many names,
Lover of all the nations, we pray for peace
In our hearts, in our homes
In our nations, in our world.
For the peace you will, we pray.
For everything there is a time:
A time for going out and a time for coming in.
For everything there is a season,
And a time for every matter under heaven.
Two South Africans who served in Jayyous:
Carol Martin (Team 40) handed over to Zodwa Nsibande (Team 41).
We left the next morning to our placements (Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Tulkarm, Jayyous, Yanoun, Hebron and the South Hebron Hills).
