Now at we are home, we are adjusting to life in Kalamazoo. As we reflect on our experience in Israel, we are reminded that God always gives us what need. All through our journey, God always provided – the hand to help us up and down steps, the water station with cold water, just enough Internet service to connect with home, air-conditioning on the bus, and friends to encourage us. There are so many examples of God’s protection and care. When we were in Jerusalem we check the blog stats and found out that there were over 12,000 views (to date there are over 17,000)! We felt so blessed knowing the tremendous support we had back home.
We want to thank Jeff, Karen, and Tim Blamer. Their organization was impressive! We will never read the Bible quite the same. The pictures and lessons have changed each one of us. The challenges to live out our faith and tell our story will not be forgotten.
A special thanks goes to Parchment Christian Reformed Church. At their last service, the members left that church to be “living water” throughout Kalamazoo. As we enjoyed the refreshing water at En Gedi, we were reminded that we too need to be “living water” in our school, our churches, and our communities. Without their generous gift, we would not have need able to have this amazing experience. We are so grateful for this gift!
So our trip to Israel is over, but it is just the beginning of the flow of living water! There is much more to come in our story.
Blessings to All,
