We started the day at the aruve line where Jesus mounted a donkey to ride into Jerusalem through the Eastern gate. On the way people lined the streets with palm branches for sukkah, crying out “God save us!” The number of people in Jerusalem on this day, is about ten times the usual size...

Praying on Mount Arbel

posted on Wednesday Jun 26 2019 at 12:00 am UTC

Hey all! To start off the day Scott had a great idea to have us hike a huge mountain. The name of the mountain is Mount Arbel! Looking at it from the ground, I thought there’s no way we’re making it up that because at the top it looks like it goes straight up and it’s very rocky....

I Believe in You

Today was our fist day in the Galilee, the place where Jesus spent most of his time on this earth. We were on a mission to tune into the walk of his life, to hear his voice and allow for the stories of our lives to play out in our minds as we walked the paths and hillsides of this rugged land. Jesus...

To Give and to Receive

posted on Monday Jun 24 2019 at 12:00 am UTC

What an amazing day! We started the morning with a lesson from Kyle about relationships. He compared the Hula Valley, with a spring that keeps giving and never receives for itself to a person who is unable to receive and develops resentment and bitterness. Alternately, he compared a healthy person...

Today, and every day since we arrived in Israel, we have had beautifully unusual weather; while the sun is blaring, it has been accompanied by a breeze we are all very, very thankful for. To begin our third day of the trip, we began our studies in Timna. Under “mushroom” rocks and surrounded...

Follow me, please.

“Follow me, please.” We hear these words every day, trusting our Rabbi and following in the dust of his feet. Day 2 of our study tour began with a rocky desert hike in Negev, studying the wadis and how they kill the most people in the desert per year. Wadis are the valleys in the desert,...

A day is done. It’s one day with many amazing sights and lessons. We started at an ancient Tel called Tel Gezer where we were introduced really really really old ruins. For many of us it was a first time seeing something like this. As we took in Gezer and the nearby Ebenezer stones our conversations...

We have arrived!

After having people leave from Texas, Louisiana, Oregon, and Michigan we all connected, tired but exited in Istanbul. We had a delay on our final flight and a longer than normal time processing through Israeli customs but we made it tired and excited. Please pray for us as we begin our journey together...
