He then began working with numerous ICEJ representatives to host thousands of young adults from around the world on fourteen successful tours and outreaches to Israel. In 2012 Peter and his wife Patricia moved to Jerusalem to volunteer for two years with the ICEJ team, which gave them invaluable experience and understanding they are now eager to share with churches in the USA.
