Our Last Day

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

Today was our last day. We woke up to pouring rain and high winds. We had to juggle the schedule a bit to account for the weather, but our group continued on. We focused our day on those final moments in the life of Christ. We began our devotion by discussing those moments during the Last Supper....

The curtain is torn.

Today was a massive day on the trip. There are so many sights to see in Jerusalem and so much to learn. We were on foot most of the day and we were able to take in so much. In one day, we went to the Temple Mount, the Davidson Center, the Southern Steps, the Western Wall, the Rabbinic Tunnels, the Pool...

His power is made perfect in weakness

We began our day on our hotel balcony of Jerusalem, listening to a devotion from Terry. Most of us have never been to Israel, and as we look out upon the city, it is exciting to think about all of the sights we will see in this ancient place over the next few days. Terry reminded us that in Biblical...

Today we departed from the Sea of Galilee. We hit some incredible stops as we made the long trip down to Jerusalem for the evening.

Today was a special day.

Today was a special day. We began by getting on a boat and slowly making the seven mile journey across the Sea of Galilee. This was a journey that Jesus and the disciples would have made many times. As we got to the middle of the sea, the boat slowed to a stop, we turned off the engines, and floated...

An incredible part of the world

posted on Saturday Feb 23 2019 at 1:00 am UTC

Today we toured all around the Sea of Galilee. We are in the north of Israel, the Sea of Galilee is fed by the north Jordan River and then the Jordan River picks up again at the south end of the sea and flows directly to the Dead Sea. But it is important to know that the sea is not incredibly wide, so...

Who do you say I am?

Yesterday, we departed from the desert and drove north. We passed through the West Bank, got to experience an Israeli security check point, and ended up stopping to spend the night by the Sea of Galilee. We will spend three days here, diving into the area in which Jesus conducted so much of His ministry....

There is nothing so useless that God can't make it useful

"There is nothing so useless that God can't make it useful." Terry made this point clear early in the morning as we stood on the sand overlooking the Dead Sea. The Dead Sea shouldn't be worth anything, there are no fish and no way to transport goods across it. Yet for some reason, people have inhabited...

Blessed are you O Lord, King of the universe

"Blessed are you O Lord, King of the universe, who brings forth bread from the earth." It is easy to grasp this blessing in a place in the world where life is supported in abundance, it is more powerful when you see God bringing forth what is required in the midst of a desert. We recited this ancient...

We are being led by an incredible local tour guide named Yehuda with Terry Feix providing us the Biblical lessons at each sight. Our group stepped into Yad Hashmonah, an incredible walk through of a typical...
