in Israel

This might be my last live mission trip update.  The Calling posts were scheduled before we left, so those will continue, but we’ve managed to blow up two adaptars (mine and the friend next to me)…I don’t really want to ask to bother another one.  Due to the limited time we get for sleep, that [...]

This has been a rough day.  Hardly anyone slept on the plane two nights ago and some of us only got a few hours of sleep last night.  Another group arrived in the middle of the night making quite a ruckus.  But although exhausted, it was a beautiful day.  Normally on a trip like this, [...]

New Mission Trip Israel – Preparing in Mind

by Wes Bridel on May 15, 2009

in Israel

As Kara and I prepare to return to the Israel in several days, I’m prompted to think of the unrest boiling, as always, over there.

Mission Trip Israel – What I Learned

by Wes Bridel on May 14, 2009

in Israel
