Getting to Know You

The Insight for Living Israel tour began with a delicious dinner and an opportunity to get to know fellow members on the tour.

Finally, Chuck Swindoll urged us to experience this trip for all it’s worth.

This is the real thing. So walk a little slower. Talk a little less. Listen a little better. Think a little deeper. —Chuck Swindoll

It’s only begun, but it’s already a memory worth keeping.

Egyptian Ruins in Joppa

Our hotel in Tel Aviv sits near ancient Joppa (think Jonah and Peter). In fact, a short walk down the beach will take you there. The Egyptians’ ancient rubble in Joppa reminds me that foreign powers all wanted to control Israel.

The Holy Land was the crossroads for international imperialism, war, and trade.

What a great reminder that we have to guard the critical points of entry into our lives.
