Intermarried: How an Arab and a Jew found common ground.
Peter and Yarden Nasser met at a festival in Akko (in the Western Galilee region of Northern Israel). Unlike most of the participants, they went to celebrate Y’shua and to tell festival-goers about Him. In the course of evangelizing, Yarden, a Jewish believer, asked Peter, an Arab believer, to translate something to help her witness. They made such a good team that they continued witnessing together at other events following the festival. Soon they were telling one another about books they had read and things they had thought about. Peter wanted a wife who loved to evangelize, but Yarden, who really did love to witness, wasn’t thinking of marriage at the time. Still, she couldn’t help being interested in the fact that Peter was not only a great guy, but obviously cared for Jewish people—and wanted to tell them about Jesus. He eventually won her heart, and three years later they were married.
