“The Filipino community from Nazareth, Afula and nearby Beit Shean appreciates the consular outreach mission conducted by the Embassy on this day. It has been two years since the last mission was held in Afula. It saved them precious time traveling for four hours going to and from Tel Aviv,” said Fr. Benny Baisas.
