Today we leave for Israel! We are so excited, incredibly grateful, and we cannot wait to experience the very places where the stages of Jesus' life and ministry took place. So surreal at this point.
We would greatly appreciate your prayers! I have set a post for each day to tell you where we will be, (given everything goes as planned), and the scriptures in the Bible that refer to that place. I am very much looking forward to the Dead Sea, riding a camel at the Masada, seeing people be baptized at the Sea of Galilee, and experiencing the Garden of Gethsemane. I can't wait to share all about it when I get home! Thank you so much for your encouragement....I will have so much to catch up on in the world of all my sweet blog friends when I return! Have a blessed week!
-For safe travel
-For everyone to be healthy (Kevin has been sick this week, but is hoping the Z-pac will take care of everything. I'm counting on Airborne!!!)
-For the members of our group to be flexible, patient, and encouraging to one another, even in the 100 degree heat!
-That we would have renewed hearts and relationships with God after walking where he walked, and having the humbling experience of being where he was born, where he was baptized, where he was crucified, and where he rose from the dead.
-That the Bible would be even more brought to life to us through this experience.
-That our families (and Chai!) at home would be safe and well cared for while we are away.
-That the holy spirit would do a great work in us through this trip.
-That we would be an encouragement and light to those we meet there.
Thank you for your prayers!
