I took this photo of a church in Cana of Galilee. It is a rather depressing sight; there are practically no Christian families left in Cana. It is a painful sight to see the light of Christian presence disappear after generations of survival from the time of the Apostolic Age.
The Christians were always more educated and operated the best schools. Due to low birth rate and emigration, the few Christians left in the Middle East frequently educate their youth so as to get out and have a chance at life in peace and prosperity.
The best thing we can do to help and support the Christian populations in the Holy Land is to travel there and to patronize their shops and restaurants. They depend upon us. If not us, then who? If you have never been to the Holy Land, you need to join us!
