One blessing is even my husband and kids are intrigued by my going. They keep telling me to take lots of pictures which I’m hoping to actually use as a witnessing tool to them when I get back in hopes it opens their hearts to the truth and validity of scripture.
I’m trying to refresh my knowledge on biblical events at the different cities and places we’ll be visiting. What I’m finding is I still have a lot of Bible to learn so I’m not so sure about the resident expert title just yet
Hey Steph @Stephmerm ,
You probably don’t have tons of time, but this is a series on the seven churches in Revelation that I really enjoyed. Of course, there are many videos like these, and it seems I learn something new in each video… but these are really good.
Speaking of not having much time, Jay McCarl (another CC pastor, author, teacher, cultural anthropologist, and more!) has short (usually about 10-15 minute) clips on his YT channel featuring many of the places Christian seeker tourists are taken. You might enjoy those….
I know the cover shot looks like a nuclear reactor; actually telescopes in Hawaii. It’s relevant.
Praying for your family’s salvation always; praying for you to have a wonderful trip, too. I am certain those in your group will be blessed by you, as well as those you encounter in your travels. I think our Father has some wonderful moments planned for you to enjoy in His land, Steph!
@Stephmerm Yay, how exciting! I remember you talking about wanting to go last year. I’m so happy for you. Have an amazing time. Can’t wait to hear about your experience when you get back. I’ll be praying for you
Morning Steph @Stephmerm,
You might not see this right away, but I just wanted to tell you how happy I am for you to be on your way, how grateful I am to our LORD for giving you this desire of your heart. You look absolutely radiant! And tears of joy are springing from my eyes… I know you will have the most blessed of trips. Shalom, my friend.
