When Love Wins

posted on Friday Mar 29 2019 at 12:00 am UTC

As we stood on the Mount of Olives and looked out over the city of Jerusalem, we were reminded of the path Jesus took in and out of the city during the week of Passover. Yehuda was able to point out where they believe Jesus held the Last Supper with his disciples. After they had eaten Jesus took...

God’s love on display

posted on Thursday Mar 28 2019 at 12:00 am UTC

NONE of the knowledge or detailed history we have acquired today can compare to the simple message of God’s love on display through Jesus, who walked through Jerusalem, but also walked into our hearts. WHO KNEW? Who knew we would see so much of Jerusalem from below ground. It was unbelievable...

In the quiet of the morning we met Mike to start the day with prayer. Our first stop would be the Yardinet Baptismal Site at the Jordan River. We had quite a group of people choosing to be baptised in the very river our Lord did so many years ago. One by one, assisted by Mike, we watched as our fellow...
