2012 Israel Trip with Jerusalem Prayer Team

Returned September 8 from eight days in Israel. It was a blessing to be in Israel at this time, with members of the Jerusalem Prayer Team. Our guide was a native of Jerusalem who fought in the Yom Kippur War of 1973. He was both knowledgeable and reverent with a heart for the Land and its people. There were some very fine devotionals at various sites which brought out the deeper meaning of the historical events. Meeting Holocaust survivors at the restored bomb shelter was inspiring, as was the dedication of the Jerusalem World Center. Best of all was standing in the Biblical sites where Jesus taught and ministered, acknowledging, “Lord, you did this for us, and you did it right here!” Being baptized in the Jordan River was another highlight. Experiencing a bond of friendship with people from many diverse locations was another blessing long to be remembered.
