“He Loved Them To The End…”

Thursday morning brought clearer skies and (slightly) warmer temperatures, thankfully! It also brought a truly bittersweet feeling. I was exhausted and exhilarated at the same time – ready to get some sleep in my own bed, ready to see family, and get in a routine again, but reluctant to leave this place I have grown… Continue reading “He Loved Them To The End…”

A Man Changed The World

Yesterday morning we woke to a cold, rainy day in Jerusalem. Temperatures had dropped overnight into the low 50’s, and storms were forecast throughout the day. With a day full of outdoor activities planned, we grabbed whatever rain gear and umbrellas we had, and got on the bus headed for Bethlehem, the birthplace of Saul,… Continue reading A Man Changed The World

Beautiful City of God

  Just for fun tonight, I’m going to start with the incidentals, so maybe you'll laugh and be forgiving of any typos or dumb, incorrect things I might happen to say...it's 1:25 a.m. and I can't be held responsible for inaccuracy! Our bus driver, David (pronounced properly DaVEED,) is probably in his early 60’s, almost… Continue reading Beautiful City of God

Here We Go Again!

I can’t tell you how many times over the last twelve months I have thought about the three little boys and four little girls (two with beautiful “ruddy” hair like King David) that we encountered in a tiny settlement in the West Bank. Jewish children, living in the West Bank (populated by many Palestinians,) picnicking… Continue reading Here We Go Again!

Jerusalem, Video Segments

It’s Here! It’s HERE!

I get a little antsy waiting for Christmas, Fridays, payday, and the next Star Wars movie. But I REALLY have been anticipating this - the release of the first video in the BIble Land Passages series! This film is entitled "Jerusalem: An Unforgettable City" and it is really, really, really good (even if I am a bit biased!) And if you're… Continue reading It’s Here! It’s HERE!

Narrowly Escaping a Jerusalem Prison…

“They bound the hands of Jesus in the garden where He prayed. They led Him through the streets in shame. They spat upon my Savior, so pure and free from sin; they said ‘Crucify Him! He’s to blame!' Upon His precious head they placed a crown of thorns. They laughed and said ‘Behold the king!’ They… Continue reading Narrowly Escaping a Jerusalem Prison…
