Calvary Israel

Well, here I am less than 48 hours away from the trip of a life time. I am trying to get last minutes things done for my family before our trip officially begins at 10:00 am on Thursday morning. I can’t wait!
I won’t have a computer to blog about my trip, but our tour leader, Matt Davis, has set one up for the group as a whole. In case you are interested in following along check it out at:

I expect to have lots to blog about when I get back! Shalom Chaverim! (Peace to you, my friends!)

It’s finally time…

It is so hard to believe…  when I posted this entry almost 8 months ago a once in a lifetime Bible Study Tour of Israel seemed so far off.
Now it is here!
That’s right, in 4 days from right now I will be about 1/2 way through the 14 hour flight to Tel Aviv.

I feel so blessed that:

  • God has made this trip possible for me.
  • That my husband is the kind of man who would send me on this trip because he knows how much it will mean to me. Even though it means that his life will be a lot less comfortable for the 2 weeks I’ll be gone – and that it was no small feat to make this possible financially.
  • That I have some wonderful sisters-in-Christ who helped to make this trip possible by gifting me a portion of the cost.
  • That my sisiter-in-law and niece will help Noah by getting Joshua to school every day while I am gone.
  • That Catie Joy is going to be my roommate!
  • I will get to see the Word of God come alive by studying it in the places that it happened.
  • That I get to go on this trip with an amazing group of people, lead by godly men who have such a heart for God and for His chosen people.

Basically, this is like a dream come true and I am full of gratitude. I just wanted you to know…
