Israel Diaries 2019

I wanted to share some exciting things that I experienced when on a recent trip 11-day trip to Israel with my church, World Outreach. To keep things from overwhelming me (and you), I am going to only provide the highlights, scripture references, and notes I took from each place we visited.

Each day of the tour is going to be a separate entry to allow me to post photos and videos as needed. Below is a breakdown of each day. As I upload posts, I will link those days to the articles and photos.

I hope that these notes I took, the experience me and my husband, Dewayne, had with a group of wonderful people, will inspire you, help you see life from a different perspective, and learn more about God and deepen your faith.
