I woke up this morning with an array of emotions as this will be our last day in this beautiful country. On day one pastor Michael talked about this being a journey; that we had the presence...

Shalom, Shalom!! My name is Andy, and I will be your tour guide for the next few paragraphs. What a rollercoaster ride we had today. We started high, at the Mount of Olives, where Jesus began the final chapter of his life so that we could have a new life in Him. Then, Gesthemene, where He pleaded...

Here it's it again! Today was our last day in the Galilee region. Last night several of us went out to the beach to watch the sunset, listen to the waves and enjoy the last views of the Sea of Galilee. After dinner we all met up for a bonfire and time of worship.

Faith and risk

What an amazing, amazing time it has been so far. Every day in Israel gets better than the last. Today we began with a boat ride and time of worship on the Sea of Galilee. No matter where you were on the boat every where you looked was another stunning vista. It was so powerful to be on the same Sea...

I am extremely honored to be the one to write todays blog on the fact of what we did today. We started the day, if you can believe it, on a cloudy, chilly beach on the East side of the Sea of Galilee. We worshiped looking out across the lake to mount Arbel, the city of Tiberias, and Capernaum. We...

So much more to tell

Shalom Rocky Peak, The weather here in Judea is similar in many ways to southern California but the temperatures are more like Death Valley since this is mostly desert climate, as in, Jesus was tempted in the desert, Though not in the traditional sense of sand and cactus, we learned that there...

Wilderness and Water

After a good night's sleep, I woke up at 5 am this morning to an amazing view of the Dead Sea, which is by the way, the lowest place on the surface of the earth (approximately 1,400 ft below sea level)!! That's pretty epic! Looking out into this over-salted lake, it is really a Dead Sea! It's an...

God's Presence and Compromises we make

Wow, what a day but that is probably said all the time. The reality is I needed today. To understand more, we need to back up. We have wanted to go to Israel since the very first trip Rocky Peak went on. The timing didn't work out for us until now. We've been anticipating for a while and getting ourselves...
