So What, Exactly, Did it Cost?

The one question I keep getting regarding my recent trip to Israel is, “What did it cost?” You see, I was there for 16 days. Most tours are 7, 9, or 11 days. And these run from $3300 to over $5000. So, people have a hard time imagining what 16 days might cost. I am […]

Rally for Peace

Sunday night a small group of us from Connections joined with the Jewish community at Temple Solel in Hollywood to pray for peace. The leadership and staff of the temple put this rally together in just 72 hours and it was the perfect way to counter the terrorism happening in Israel. And isn’t that what being […]

Modesty is a Matter of Putting Others First

For the last few months, the Lord has been talking to me about dressing modestly. Lately, it’s been pretty easy to dress modestly, considering the last couple of years I have been battling a 40-pound weight gain thanks to a thyroid issue. I praise God for the recent 20-pound weight loss, but as the scale […]

What Is The Highlight of My Trip?

At dance practice this week, one of the ladies asked what was the highlight of my trip? I thought about it and couldn’t really come up with an answer. And the question still lingers in my mind because I can’t put my finger on just one thing, one event that I could say, “That is […]

Messy-anic Congregations?

A few years back, I started attending a Messianic congregation. I had no clue what that meant at the time, but a friend invited me because I was pursuing the Feasts of the Lord, hosting dinners for Passover and Rosh Hashanah. She thought I would enjoy it. And she was right. I did. Perhaps, too, she […]

Secrets Revealed – Exile or Redemption?

When you start delving into the Hebrew language, you start discovering things that you never saw before. It’s like opening a locked box from long ago and discovering secrets within. On my trip to Israel, I was reminded of this. I took Beginning Hebrew three times. Part of it is that the semetic language seems […]

We Must Let Them Know

  Maria and I returned home safetly, baruch Hashem! The trip was a long one (16 hours flight time on three different flights) made more so by the fact that we couldn’t sleep on Saturday night. We were able to get some sleep on the planes, but you know how that kind of sleep is […]

Slight Change in Plans

Now before you go thinking the title of this post means I’ve opted to stay in Israel, that’s not the case. Our flight is at am and we thought we could catch a few hours sleep then head for the airport. Turns out we have to be there by 2am, and there are no shared […]

Feeling Full

Shabbat Shalom from the land of Israel! Today is our last day here and I am feeling full. That’s the only way I know how to describe it. Satisfied doesn’t quite cover it. It’s like the difference between eating until you are satisfied, and feeling completely full. Those who diet understand what I mean. The […]

In the Every Day Things

Today was another amazing day. As I’ve said before, just when we think it can’t get any better, it does. Sometimes in powerful ways, sometimes in the every day things. We rose early to catch Daniel Carmel’s worship boat. Daniel’s is the only boat run by a believer. He came to faith in Yeshua 17 […]
