Tour Journal For Israel Study Tour with The Bridge Bible Church December 9-20, 2013

Twas the Night Before Israel

Twas the Night Before Israel

As we shuffle around our hotel room making last minute changes to our suitcases, I can’t help but feel like it is the night before Christmas. It is finally here! Our team from The Bridge Bible Church in Bakersfield California is going to take off at 8:30 tomorrow morning and touch down in Telaviv 20 hours later ready to embark on the adventure of our lives. 56 people have been praying, training, studying and learning in preparation to walk where Jesus walked.

Tonight many of the team are staying in Los Angeles so the 5:30 check-in time wont be so painful. We arrive our first day in Israel in the afternoon and will spend most of the daylight left getting to our hotel near our first stop the following day.

It is our goal to post at least once a day on this blog. Check back daily to see the places we’ve seen and hear stories about the trip. Pray for us as it looks like we will be in for a very wet first week in Israel. But, God is good and has something amazing in store. We look forward to having you along with us and hope you enjoy a glimpse of Israel through our eyes.
