Day 1 – Jumping Off The Page

Day 1 – Jumping Off The Page

Shalom from Israel.

It has been a long day and a half to get here but we are all very excited.   This is one of those experiences in your life where you plan for months and it feels like it will never come and then one day you realize this is it.   Even though we have only been in the land for a few hours the stories from the bible are already beginning to jump right off of the page.   After leaving the airport we headed toward the biblical city of Gezer.  We spent time getting oriented to the land and learning about the role of city gates and what it means to be a city on a hill.   Due to the fact that we are all really tired this blog is very brief compared to what we studied and learned this evening but trust me it was amazing.   All that to say stay tuned as our first full day begins tomorrow and we are all excited to see what God has for us.
