A year from now, I’ll be in Israel. And I’m inviting you to go with me!
It’s a beautiful place – the landscape, the history, and the people. It is a place like no other.
This will be the third trip I’ve led a trip to Israel. At the end of my first trip in 2010, I felt sad as I left what seems like a piece of home. There is something grounding about Israel. It is a small country in size but a vast country in its diversity.
Many people travel to Israel each year to experience the past, the biblical history. But history is alive, you are a part of it, and travelling through Israel becomes more of a journey than a sightseeing adventure. You will not be an observer but a participant. You will interact with people, places, and most importantly, God, in ways that will likely surprise you. You’ll face challenges, make discoveries, and take steps into growth. If you allow him to do so, God will change you.
My style of journeying through Israel is experiential. We will serve for several days, setting ourselves aside and meeting needs of others. We will sift through dirt and pieces of history in an archaeological dig. We’ll float in the Dead Sea, walk through the streets of the Old City of Jerusalem, and reach the heights of Masada. We’ll explore Nazareth, Caesarea, Haifa, Jaffa, Capernaum, Tiberias, Bethlehem, and many areas of Jerusalem.
I coordinate the trip through Lifetree Adventures/Group International Mission Trips. They do an amazing job of working with our partners in Israel and taking care of all aspects of registrations and travel details. I will create a private Facebook group, where we can connect with one another and I can share suggestions, answer questions, and make sure you feel prepared. With both trips I’ve led, people have walked away with changed hearts and lifelong friends. Many of us have kept in contact long after our trips.
Additional information from Lifetree Adventures/Group International Mission Trips is available here. It costs just $100 to reserve your space. Please don’t delay in registering or in travelling to Israel if it’s something you want to do. While I won’t say “never,” it’s very possible this is the last time I will lead a group to Israel. With the service aspect, small group size, and hands-on experiences, it’s a unique opportunity, and I hope you’ll join me!
