Gail, Debra, and I had a wonderful time in Israel. Our tour was ably led by Rev. Jorge Sedaca of Chosen People Ministries, and Tali Abadi, an Israeli guide. We visited most of the key sites such as Mt. Carmel, the Garden Tomb, and Capernaum. I found the visit to the Western (‘Wailing’) Wall particularly meaningful. As our Israeli guide, herself a Messianic Jew, said, ‘you can pray anywhere, but from here you can make a local call’ (it was a joke).
I’m sure that many of you have also enjoyed places such as Masada, and the Dead Sea where a ‘swim’ takes on a totally different meaning. The tour group was also an extremely convivial group. But it’s also great to be back in fellowship at WVBC.
Many thanks for your prayers and for Pastor Bob Bahr’s support during our time away.
