New Mission Trip Israel – Preparing in Mind

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. Have you ever thought about what that struggle really represents?  And who is actually battling? “And as for Ishmael, I have heard you: I will surely bless him; I will…
