Stay thirsty, my friends

The morning began with an adventurous bus trip to the Mount of Olives. From the view on the mount, we surveyed the eastern side of Jerusalem with the Temple Mount in full view. The Kidron Valley that stretched in front of the mount is a combination of tombs and gardens. The gold dome of the muslim...

God’s Omnipotence

Early morning at the Temple Mount has a calmness that is coiled with anticipation. As we made our way towards the Dome of the Rock, we passed the Wailing Wall and watched as the Jewish men prepared for the day’s Bar Mitzvas. Once we were at the top the mount it opened to a large plaza where...

The root of all truth

Wow! What another incredible day in Israel! We started our morning looking over The Sea of Galilea for our last time on this trip. We gleaned from Exodus 31:3 that says the wisdom of God is the root of all truth. Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth and the life.” (John 14:6) As we prepared...

Help me to the feet of Jesus

We began the day with a devotional by the Sea of Galilee talking about God’s omniscience and how that impacts prayer. If God knows everything, does it make a difference how many people are praying for something? Will more people make God change his mind? If not, then does sharing prayer requests...

Uncharted territory

Today we took in the sights and scenes around the northern part of the Sea of Galilee. The day began with a devotion on the immutability (unchanging) God while overlooking the Sea to the west. The city of Tiberius was shining on the hillside in the morning sun under a clear, crisp blue sky. Mt....

Spectacular and unique

As we gathered for devotions by the bank of the Dead Sea this morning it became abundantly clear that, although we are all seeing and learning about the same places, each person is taking away a very personal and different perspective. God is speaking to each of us in whispers of aw. Today we toured...

The sovereignty of God through it all

Salty air and the sounds of birds greeted us on a pier overlooking the Dead Sea the morning of day two. As we began our morning devotion, we prayed for friends here and back home and reflected on the great I Am who is independent of us, yet invites each of us to experience the joy of sharing Him with...

We've Arrived!

Just a quick update to let everyone know that we made it to Israel safe and sound. What a long flight with a few delays but as they say, once you board an airliner to the Middle East your trip to the Holy Land begins. Too many stories to tell but let’s just say it was fun to experience so many cultures...
