Israel Or Bust
By God's grace He invited me back to land which He has chosen: Israel. However, this time I am helping lead the group (I don't know what they are thinking). To begin, I pray for peace in Jerusalem. I understand the true peace will not come until My Savior Jesus sits on His throne, but I pray for a moment of peace so we can enjoy a safe trip and a fun adventure.
I am eternally grateful to be a part of this trip so I hope this adventure is multifaceted for myself and FOI. First, I pray that many long lasting friendships will come from this excursion. Trips to Israel always produce a strong bond between those who experience the Holy Land together. When we enter the land, we enter as strangers, but when we leave, we leave as brothers and sisters. (Sound Familiar) Second, I pray the participants of this trip might aquire an appreciation for Israel and show support for the Israeli's in this present time. I feel as though one of my callings from God while here on earth is to lead believers to appreciate their roots in our faith: The Land, The Seed, and The Blessing. Third and most important. I pray that friendships be built for the sake of the gospel of Jesus the Messiah. As we sojourn through the ancient land may friendships be built, and the gospel made clear to those who hear.
Am Yisrael Chai,
