Our last day

posted on Sunday Sep 09 2018 at 2:32 am UTC

Last day in Israel! On one hand it's gone by so fast and, on the other hand, we feel like we've been here forever. The old adage "we're glad to go home but we hate to leave" seems appropriate." It's truly been an incredible trip; one that we'll be processing for a long time. Our highlights from...

Our second day in Jerusalem

Our second day in Jerusalem. So much to see and absorb! We're really on information overload now. It's going to take some time to fully process this trip and to organize our notes and pictures. We started our day exploring the City of David. It's the site of extensive archaeological excavations and...

Jerusalem is a study of contradictions. It's holy and secular; modern and ancient. Three religions crash together and the result can be disastrous. It's a archaeologist's dream and a place of pilgrimage for many - including us. It would be hard to find a more fascinating place! We spent most of today...

On the Sea of Galilee

posted on Wednesday Sep 05 2018 at 2:30 am UTC

Greetings from Yisrael (Israel)!! Today was bookended by the Sea of Galilee! Early this morning we took a boat ride. It was a beautiful morning to be on a boat. In the middle of the lake (because it's really a lake) the boat stopped and we considered how much of Jesus' life happened on and around...

Where Jesus lived and ministered

posted on Tuesday Sep 04 2018 at 2:30 am UTC

Today was all about Yeshua.....Jesus! And Peter. And the Sea of Galilee. It was a busy day with many sites. We began our day by hiking to the top of Mt Arbel which rises over 1300 feet and has a stunning view of the Sea of Galilee. Pastor Gordon shared that this was mostly likely a place where Jesus...

We started this day off by doing something that most of never thought of doing - a camel ride at a Bedouin village! It was fun, a bit uncomfortable and we were glad we had patient camels! Maybe we can put "camel riding" on our bucket lists just to cross it off? We also learned about Bedouin hospitality...

Oasis in the desert

Greetings from Israel! The word of the day was HOT! 100 plus degrees. However, it didn't stop us from putting in a full day of hiking and exploring. There's so much to see and learn! Definitely like drinking out of a fire hose. Our first stop today was En Gedi Nature Preserve. It's a beautiful place...

Erev Tov -- good evening from Israel! What a full day we've had!

Ancient Israel started to come alive to us! [topic name="yad-hashmonah"] 1...

We have arrived!

We’re in Israel!! So many of us have been dreaming about this day for so long that it’s almost surreal to say “we’re in Israel!!” Our group had a smooth travel day (really two days). Long, but smooth. And for that we are grateful. We have an early wake up call tomorrow so we can start learning...
