Final Day of a Trip of a Lifetime

posted on Friday February 24 2017 at 1:11 am UTC

We made it! Our last day in Israel was bittersweet to say the least. Throughout the past ten days we have become a family—many of us started out as strangers but the friendships we have formed will last a lifetime. We began the day at the Mt. of Olives. All of us were a little cold and groggy but...

A Mom’s Perspective

posted on Thursday February 23 2017 at 1:10 am UTC

As I sit here and reflect on day 6 of this amazing journey through Israel, I keep coming back to the same conclusion that this trip has surpassed my expectations in ways I can’t begin to articulate. Prior to coming I thought to myself, “how is it going to be studying the bible all day every day for...

A High # Five and a Lost iPhone

posted on Wednesday February 22 2017 at 1:01 am UTC

So, this morning we had an interesting dilemma. It all stemmed from last night when I had the rough realization that I, Rachel Cassar, had yet again left my phone somewhere—this time on the Mountain of the Beatitudes (not a bad place if I was going to have to choose). We had driven too far from the...

Worship and amazement

We have transitioned from traveling through solely the Old Testament, to walking in the footsteps of our Lord, Jesus Christ. In the morning, the winds howled and rushed through our hair as we headed out to the Sea of Galilee. The Spirit of the Lord overwhelmed us as we worshipped on the lake where Jesus...

Today has been incredible! My eyes have been opened so much throughout the past couple days in Israel, every site we have visited and learned about has completely blown my mind! Ask anyone on this trip and they will say all I have said is “this is crazy!”, “this is insane!”, and “this is breath...

The adventure continues

Waking up to an incredible sunrise next to Dead Sea set the present for today's explorations. After most of us got a good night of sleep, we were all geared up for our march to the top of Masada. Masada is one of the most astounding sights. What was once a stronghold and World Trade Center, now towers...

No idea what I was getting into!

posted on Saturday February 18 2017 at 12:59 am UTC

Honestly, I had no idea what I was getting into.  After hurriedly throwing clothes into my suitcase and navigating through breakfast, I climbed onto the bus, expecting a busy but somewhat boring day:  we’d hike several miles and then sit for an hour listening to the tour guide drone on and on and...

We've Arrived!

Friends and Family, Greetings from Israel! We just made it safely after a 20 hour journey from LAX including two flights and a short stop in Istanbul. Our first flight lasted about 12 hours and included a very delicious dinner (yes, you read that correctly! Turkish Air has the best food!) and then...
