For 3 days, he attended the Annual meeting for the Israel / Palestine Mission Network (IPMN) of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), where 70 delegations gathered and discuss their support and work for Palestine, including the Olive Tree Campaign. Muhannad gave three workshops to three groups on Palestine and the Campaign, a talk with discussion to all the attendees, and screened a movie on the Campaign and olive trees.

It worth mentioning that the Presbyterian Church (USA) is a strong partner of the JAI in the Olive Tree Campaign, through which several participants join the Olive Picking and Olive Planting Programs each year.

Followed was a visit to Manhattan College, where he had meetings with various classes, talked about the Olive Tree Campaign, and discussed how they could send delegations to Palestine through the JAI in the future.
