MISSION ISRAEL 2011!
My trip to Israel was profound in so many ways; it is difficult to know where to start! The Father absolutely opened every door that needed to be opened, provided for every need – even to the point of being extravagant in His love. I am so grateful to Him for His “pouring out” over me. Because of the nature of the days we live in, much of what took place has to be kept sealed. I pray you understand. There is a day that the Father will allow it to be revealed, but it is not today.
This entire trip was an intensely blessed time where the Lord spoke directly into my life. The only word for the Church the Lord gave me during my time in Israel was what I sent you last week called, “Come Away from the Ledge of Despair.” This word directly speaks into end-time scenarios that are producing fear that is not from the heart of our Father. “God has not given us a spirit of fear but power, love and a sound and well-balanced mind.” (2 Timothy 1:7) It is my prayer that we make peace be our umpire; may it rule and reign in our hearts!
Some of you took the opportunity to sow into the lives of my hosts in Jerusalem; those gifts were greatly appreciated. This precious couple generously housed me and extended an invitation to share in their Seder Feast. This is something my heart has longed for since I surrendered my life to Jesus! The Seder Feast or Pesach is known by Christians as the Last Supper. It is the Passover Feast (also known as the Feast of Unleavened Bread) and is what the Lord shared with His disciples just prior to His death on the Cross. (See Matthew 26) It was an amazing experience and a gift from God that I do not take lightly. All of the symbolism that Jews have practiced for centuries during these Holy Days, point to Jesus as the Passover Lamb and Messiah. It is my sincere hope that they will turn, look and behold their King!
As I wrote you prior to the Lord sending me on this trip, the ministry is in dire need of a computer. Mine was working very slowly before the trip and this voyage was very taxing on it. I will be doing a great deal of writing in the days to come and working with photos taken, so your gifts sown toward a computer are genuinely and deeply appreciated!

While in Israel, I took this photo of the Eastern Wall. Right as I got there the sun came out from behind the cloud. All creation testifies to the glory of God!
