On our last day we had wonderful experiences tracing footsteps of Jesus last day. Upper room as He washed disciples feet explaining New Covenant, Gethsemane as He submitted to Father’s will, Caiphias house where He was deserted, the Praetorian house where He obeyed, Golgotha where He showed ultimate...

We spent the day walking about Jerusalem, seeing the places Jesus would have stopped, engaged others, and done ministry. We started by visiting the Temple Mount, which now is Home to the Dome of the Rock. Some of us had to put on skirts to cover our knees - even the fellas! We also got a chance to...

On to Jerusalem! But first, a few pit stops. We traveled to Nazareth first to see the boyhood home of Jesus and get our first look at the Valley of Megiddo.

We began the morning bright and early and were sitting on the shore of the Galilee by 8AM. We spent time with Jesus, asking him: “what does Jesus think of me?”. As you can imagine, it was a beautiful morning. We then stopped at Korazim! We conducted our own little synagogue service in the ruins of...

Day 04 - Sat Oct 20

We started bright and early at Mt. Arbel. This mountain is where many rabbis would go to pray for those closest to them, and where Jesus most likely went to pray before choosing his disciples. Apparantly Jesus was one tough-cookie because this was quite a hike!! We scaled the rock walls, but got a glorious...

Then we continued up the coast of the Dead Sea to Qumran to see the cave where the Dead Sea Scrolls were found. We passed through Jericho...

Day 2, here we go!

posted on Friday Oct 19 2018 at 2:30 am UTC

We started the morning early with a hike through a desert canyon at Eid Avdat. This gave us an idea of part of what Gods people would have wandered through in the wilderness of zin for 40 years! We hiked up, and up, and up! The view at the top was incredible. Then we took our bus to Masada for hike...

God provided!

We wasted no time getting off the plane (despite little sleep) in Israel and hitting the road to see our first of many stops! First up: Gezer, where we witnessed standing stones erected thousands of years ago to mark what God has done. We read Joshua 4, and asked ourselves: if we were going to create...
