Day 6 is in the books! Today was a bit different for our group. For the first time since we started the trip, we didn’t have an intense hike today! The Lord blessed us with a lighter schedule and seeing as how it was over 100 degrees here, we couldn’t be more thankful. We started the day...

Outside of our comfort zone

Shalom! Day five! Today was a bit lighter scheduling-wise than yesterday, but we enjoyed being able to take our time at each site visit. We started out with another early morning hike (are you seeing a pattern here?) through the Golan Heights. We learned a lot about the Zealots and what they stood for....

Shabbat Shalom! Day 4 was our busiest day yet! We started the day with a very strenuous yet rewarding hike. The, shall we say, challenging (and sometimes exhausting) hike up was well worth it for the breath-taking view we had of the Sea of Galilee at the end. That’s right folks, we are officially...

Day three started out a bit less physically intense than yesterday. Instead of wandering through the desert, we rode a Gondola up to Israel’s most popular national park: Masada.

Remind us of His promises

Day one has absolutely blown us away! The leaders of our trip have elected to not tell us where we are going. This has allowed us to be present and fully surrendered before the Lord in every moment we get, rather than worrying over an itinerary. The popular phrase from Pastor Josh has been “We’ll...

And We're Off!

Shalom from Israel! Our group has been off to a great start during our first three days here. We started off the trip playing a few competitive rounds of Spicy Uno in the airport. If you don’t know what Spicy Uno is, just ask Pastor Josh! I mean what else do you do when your flight is delayed!?...
