It’s our last day in Israel. Can’t believe we have walked 85 miles on foot in this land in the last 10 days! We are so tired physically, but rejuvenated spiritually as we have unpacked so much of God’s love letter to us! We are forever changed! We started at the Mt. of Olives, in the Kidron...

One Story, Many Chapters

Today I asked Ronen what his favorite places are to take people as a guide over Israel. He said “I have no favorite place. They are all the same to me because this is all one story, just different chapters.” That statement could not have been more perfect for describing this day. We covered...

After pausing this morning to listen to the waves crashing on the Sea of Galilee one last time, we made the trek UP to Jerusalem. Everything in the land is considered up to Jerusalem. Check out the Psalms of Ascent (chapters 120-134) to see where our help comes from! Our first stop is Megiddo looking...

A Story to Tell

posted on Sunday Jun 09 2019 at 12:00 am UTC

Today was the Sabbath, so for Israel this was a day of rest. And the gift we felt was a not-as-fast day! We walked everywhere at “sabbath pace”. This was actually a great pace chance because it allowed many of us to think about the story that God is writing in our lives and the ways in which...

Zealous for God!

We got on the road at 7:30am this morning and headed North to the Golan Heights. This land has been disputed for years between Israel and Syria. Today it is Israel’s land. That said, we were told that mines may still be here so we were sure to stay on the path and close to our Rabbi! Ha! In...

Covered in His Dust

Where did Jesus feed the five thousand? Where did He calm the storm or walk on water? Where was Jesus when He healed a blind man? These stories and SO MANY MORE are where we were today in the Galilee Region. But those miracles are not what today’s post will be about. Today is about discipleship....

Thirsty for Living Water!

We trekked about 9 more miles today in the desert of Israel to Ein Gedi.  The brutal heat slapped us right in the face! THE DESERT IS HOT! Until you experience what the wilderness is really like you can’t grasp what the Israelites experienced. Where we started our climb is where David hides...

There is no I in desert

Today was a trek for sure! To put it in FitBit terms, we hiked over 10 miles totaling over 21,000 steps and an equivalent of 80 floors in upward hiking! Our legs reflect this number so I imagine we will all have no trouble sleeping! Across these ten miles of hiking was a theme. A theme that was set...

In the eyes of the Lord

Our boots hit the ground running hard! In just 11 hours are minds have been blown! We visited the hill country of Israel and our first stop was Tel Gezer. Deuteronomy 20:1-16 Pastor Brian read to us out the the text where Joshua takes Gezer. We were reminded to stand tall and fight against sin and...

Now all that stands between us and the Holy Land is about 19 hours of travel time! There is definitely a high level of excitement and anticipation as we all expect The Lord...
