Greetings in the name of Jesus! Wow! It's been a long, seemingly ever changing journey, but we finally made it to Israel.
After many weather challenges and airport “change ups,” we landed today around 9:00 am. This was following a flight change where we were bumped up to an earlier flight from our regularly scheduled one. Whew! Long story, but God was with us.
We are all safe and sound... well, that last part might be debatable.
Thanks for all your prayers! We felt them!
One quick break on our way to JFK.
After our Arrival at Ben Gurion airport, we met up with Genesis Boutique Tours and our Bus and driver. Although very tired from the extra early trip to JFK (which included weather related detours and restricted speed limits) followed by the flight through Istanbul, Turkey, we took a great tour of Jaffa (biblical Joppa). This is the ancient seaport from which the Prophet Jonah Fled from God (Jonah 1:17) and where Peter stayed with Simon the Tanner and restored Tabitha to life (Acts 9:36-43).
Now that a delicious family style dinner is over, we plan to do some “extra” sight seeing and finish with a nice relaxing walk along the Mediterranean Sea.
After a good night’s rest, we will have an early breakfast at 6:30 and load the bus at 7:30 in the morning.
Sure wish you all were here!
