Now I understand

This was an amazing journey through Israel, starting in a biblical garden and Gezer, and ending with walking the streets and tunnels of Jerusalem, and culminating with a silent walk on the ramparts of the city. A journey that cannot be described in words or shown in photos, only experienced in the...

The Holy City

Today was our last, and longest, full day in Israel, and boy was it packed full of things to see. We spent the entire day exploring Jerusalem. What an amazing city it is. There is just so much happening here. The culture and history of this place is overwhelming. For the sake of my brain not melting...

Total and complete surrender

posted on Wednesday May 06 2015 at 12:57 am UTC

Waking up in Jerusalem is a feeling all its own. It is the first day we realized our trip is coming to an end. We have absorbed so much and have had the word come to life in front of us day after day. Today was no exception. We began our morning on the Mount of Olives, a place of rich events. It...

This morning we bid a fond farewell to the Sea of Galilee. How powerful it was to walk the land where Jesus walked, and to cruise on (and swim in) the waters on which He sailed and walked. If I looked in the right direction, it was possible to look across the waters and imagine that Jesus might have...

Crossing The Sea Of Galilee

Wake up, get ready, breakfast, BOAT RIDE! This is how today started. We climbed on a boat that could hold about 60 passengers to go to the other side of the Sea of Galilee. We worshiped on the boat, singing at the top of our lungs to our Creator. It was one of the most beautiful times singing praises...

Responding to Truth

Where do I even begin? Today was a very full, but very amazing day! We started the morning with worship on the shore of Galilee and it was here that the theme of the day was set. We sang the song No Longer Slaves. Mike shared that this song is centered around scripture and in Isaiah 43 we are reminded...

Your Perfect Grace Has Brought Me To This Place

“Your Perfect Grace Has Brought Me To This Place" These words come from one of the songs we sang as we looked out on the beach over the Sea of Galilee this morning. Our day started very early with a wake-up call at 5 am. We needed to head out of town early to beat a bicycle race on the street...

A stronghold and a refuge

posted on Friday May 01 2015 at 12:44 am UTC

We started our morning heading out from the Dead Sea Hotel to a place nearby called Masada. Prior to our pre-study material, I had no idea about this place. Masada was now on my radar as a must see place even though it is more of a Roman Empire historical site. As a boy I loved building forts and...

In The Great Outdoors

Today, we started our adventure at the opening of a canyon in the Zin Wilderness. The rock formations and native plants were breathtaking. They looked like something from a painting…something that you cannot begin to describe, but only encourage others to experience. Our group of 46, plus our fearless...

Shalom! We had an amazing day today! I apologize in advance for the length of this blog, but WOW it was amazing! First, just being in Israel is beyond anything we could have anticipated. We have all heard so many bible stories and we all have an image of what to expect. But now we all will experience...

We Made It!

Hey everyone! We’re here…finally! After 20+ hours of travel, including two planes rides (one I thought was never going to end) and a short trip on a bus, we made it to Israel! As I’m writing this entry, we are all getting settled in to our cozy beds (that we have been waiting so long for) at...
