House of Bread

posted on Thursday December 12 2019 at 1:00 am UTC

Our day began in Bet Sahour, home of the Shepherds’ Field. Bet Sahour means House of Watchers. An interesting question was posed: Why did God choose to deliver the good news to the shepherds first? A: They were ordinary people, and Jesus is called both the Good Shepherd and the Lamb of God. We...

All gates will be open!

Today’s adventure started by going thru security at the Temple Mount. We learned from Ronen (our tour guide) that 4000 years ago there was nothing on this site. It didn’t seem like a prime location to build a temple - not defensible, not on a trade route, no water, but God chose Mt Moriah...

Journey to Jerusalem

posted on Tuesday December 10 2019 at 1:00 am UTC

Going “up” to Jerusalem today, but first we crossed the Sea of Galilee by boat, the Almgor.  So exciting to experience a voyage where Jesus rebuked the wind & waves & walked on water!  We could feel His hand on us as we were surrounded by storm clouds, but we were safe...

What do you have that I need?

Today we began in the Bet She’an National Park. Bet She’an means “house of quiet.” What a misnomer! This was the capital city of the Decapolis. They had everything a person could want - shopping, sports, education, theater, spas, good roads, philosophers, religion & more!...

Who do you say I am?

Today’s journey began in Gamla in the Golan Heights (aka Bashan). Gamla means “camel” and when you see the pictures of the mountain you’ll understand why. We learned that Gamla is the Masada of the North. Gamla was occupied by zealots who were famous for the sicarii knife and...

We ALL Need Living Water

posted on Friday December 06 2019 at 1:00 am UTC

We began this day in Ein Gedi. The National Park is filled with Tamarisk trees and ibexes. The area between Wadi David & Wadi Argot is where David was chased by Saul. When Saul stopped in a cave, David was waiting inside and cut off the corner of Saul’s robe instead of killing him. The corner...

Living in the Desert

Today was another incredible day. We went to Masada, Kfar Hanokdim, Tel Arad, a roadside wadi and swam in the Salt Sea.  Masada is the most popular National Park in Israel. We learned about how Masada was a stronghold. It was turned into a center for world trading by Herod the Great. Goods such...

Grafted into God’s kingdom

Our 1st day of “boots on the ground” took us to Beth Shemesh, Tel Azekah, Maresha & Lachish. In each location we learned about its unique place in Scripture. Beth Shemesh is where Samson met and entertained Delilah. Even so, Samson is mentioned in the Faith Hall of Fame in Hebrews...

Istanbul to Tel Aviv

posted on Tuesday December 03 2019 at 1:30 am UTC

It’s 11:30pm in Istanbul. Our flight from Houston was delayed causing us to miss our connect to Tel Aviv. We are weary and tired with another 2 hour flight ahead of us. We are also grateful. We flew across the ocean on a luxury airliner with meals and snacks. Few get that opportunity. Soon,...
