Wilbur and Lorie Wood spent a month (November 10 – December 10, 2006) volunteering their time and energy at the Friends International Center in Ramallah. During that time they became part of the life of the Center. They prepared the garden for winter, helped prepare for groups coming to FICR, helped host events at FICR, prepared an e-mail list, and did the many jobs that needed to be done around the Center.
