Mission Trip Israel – What I Learned

From this experience, I really had to learn to rest and trust in God.  I could do nothing – and everything was in His hands.  That is always the case in life, but too often I allow myself to think that I am the master of my own life, when in reality, it can all…


Mission Trip Israel – The Hospital: Part 5

I want to say a word about the Muslims there.  About half way through they moved us from one room to a bigger one that Glenn and I shared with an older man (who had to have a body guard because he had dementia and would wander off) and with Tony, a young Muslim man. …


Mission Trip Israel – The Hospital: Part 4

The burning and subsequent healing in the hospital really helped us to understand just how small we are, and just how big God is to have all of these brothers and sisters in Messiah come out and support us.  We knew no one there, but God knew all of them there, and he brought out…


Mission Trip Israel – The Hospital: Part 3

Glenn had to have a lot of blood drawn and IV’s; each time they had a hard time finding a vein.  The first time they poked him many times before we finally started praying for a good stick.  Then he got a good stick.  Each time after that we would pray that they would get…


Mission Trip Israel – The Hospital: Part 2

The Body of Christ came out! We hadn’t done any mission work, nor spent any of our vacation in the city where the hospital was, so we knew no one.  However, word spread and one by one (or two, or three) they came to offer their help and prayers. We also had the advantage of…


Mission Trip Israel – The Hospital: Part 1

Someone else had to drive, and somehow Glenn kept it together and got in the driver’s seat.  Kara prayed for us the whole way to the hospital.  We showed up to the emergency room and it was craziness as they tried to help us.  We started walking into the hospital but they brought wheel chairs…


Mission Trip Israel – The Spa

That evening we drove back to Tiberius at about 8pm.  We walked up to the Spa and the lights were on, the automatic doors open – so we walked in.  It was a big place and we walked down the entryway to the desk, but there was no one there.  There were maps of the…


Mission Trip Israel – Day 14: Wednesday, May 30 , 2007

Kara, Glenn, & I had a 6 day vacation planned for the end of this trip.  I’m not going to go into detail because this was a vacation, but I’ll share briefly where we went.  We drove down to Eilat on the Red Sea and then crossed over into Jordan and caught a cab up…


Mission Trip Israel – Day 13: Tuesday, May 29, 2007

This was the last day of the mission part of our trip. Today was a day for tying up loose ends.  We went in a few different directions looking to bless those that we had met along the way.  In Jerusalem, we went by Makor Hatikva School which is an incredible school for young believers. …


Mission Trip Israel – Day 12, Monday, May 28, 2007

I woke up early to pray on the roof of Beit Immanuel.  It’s beautiful up there to look across the city from the top of this four-story building.  I knew we would be praying for direction on which way to go that day and I just felt hungry to have more alone time with Him…
