Thankful for This Israel Trip

As we all are returning home from what has been for most of us a once in a lifetime experience, I’ve had time to reflect on how we become frustrated at times (when we are stuck in traffic, or in a long line or plans are unexpectedly altered). We probably all experienced that in the past couple days. I wondered how Jesus and the disciples handled frustrating circumstances. The Bible tells of many circumstances where crowds followed them in their travels. I am sure we are all missing out on some very teachable moments in those circumstances.

We are so thankful for this trip. Thank you to the IFL and Inspiration staff for doing a great job handling such a large group and making it an enjoyable experience. We may not be coming home physically refreshed but certainly spiritually overflowing!

Meeting Chuck and Cynthia
It was such a joy to visit with Cynthia and Chuck after one of our evening meals this week. I am thankful for Chuck’s powerful teaching.
Tom & Katie Hayes and Condall & Kathy Clegg
I would also like to thank Tom and Katie Hayes who did a great job as our mentors and Condall and Kathy Clegg for keeping us together—their fellowship was wonderful.
Our guide Yaniv, made our long days enjoyable at every moment. Our driver, "the other" Yaniv, kept us on schedule and gave us some extra special experiences.

Finally, I want to thank my daughter Sarah for inviting me to join her on this incredible journey!
