We want to help you bring the land and the lessons of the Bible to life!

Jim Showers, Executive Director of Friends of Israel joins our podcast today. He shares about the ministry, which was begun in 1938, ten years before Israel became a nation, and how going to the Land feels like "coming home." Jim's teaching takes us to Acts 10, the pivotal passage which reveals the beginning of God's plan to redeem both Jews and Gentiles.
