Five of our Peacemakers in Action gather in Nigeria this week to call on the country to hold fair, peaceful and respectful elections and to urge religious leaders to avert conflict in their country. They'll be sending us dispatches. Here's the most recent update, from Israeli/Palestinian Peacemaker Yehezkel Landau:
Our meetings have gone very well. We gave the Statement of Solidarity to key religious and political leaders. A program of two days seems like a week – James and Ashafa have kept us productively busy. We are enjoying the warm sunshine and the warmth of the people.
A highlight for me was kindling the Chanukah candles with my Christian and Muslim brothers in my hotel here in Abuja. We are now leaving for Jos. Shalom to everyone there, Yehezkel
