Albert Vexler, Jerusalem Prayer Breakfast, arranged a meeting with Parliament member Tatiana Mazarsky. She was born in Russia, and after graduating from high school in the USSR she made Aliyah. Here in the Land her accomplishments brought her to the Knesset.

Kibbutz Be’eri, Second Visit

Julie Sironi came to our hotel to join us for breakfast. Such a good time sharing with this lady, now so well known in Israel for her own heart for Israel and for her coordinating the work of Kenneth Copeland Ministries here. It’s so pleasurable to communicate with a kindred spirit.

Shepherd’s Field – City of David

We began this last day with the troopers walking through a rather desolate weedy area to an ancient structure over a cave which Guy said could be the place of the birth of Jesus. Guy explained his reasons for thinking it could be from the Scriptures, however, I haven’t had time to study the Scriptures he referred to for you. But having been in Nazareth and this “shepherd’s field,” we really touched the first coming of our Lord. We could not go into Bethlehem because there are no soldiers available to man the entry.

Shabbat in Israel

It is Shabbat. And I am taking a shabbat. Resting in the hotel while most of the others went to Masada and the Dead Sea (Yam HaMelach).
Oops. I’ve been coming back to the hotels and writing the blogs after very busy days. And then arising early for what the next day holds. So I got behind. To fix the matter, I wrote three days in one. When I checked to see what your comments were, I saw the 3-day post was not posted. This morning I checked. Still not there. I thought, Oh my! The work week is over, and they didn’t get it posted.

Our First Day in Jerusalem

Just after breakfast, we gathered in a room where we would have two lectures.

The first gentleman holds the very important position of Ministry of the Diaspora.
I was shocked when he presented me with a plaque.
You can read it from the picture posted here. We will take it home, but it will find its way back to the walls of Migdal-Arbel Prayer and Study Center.

Entry into Jerusalem

As we walked out from Hotel Ramat on the Galilee to board the bus south for Jerusalem I snapped a picture of a “parking lot” just outside the door.
Families evacuated from Kiriyat Shmona in the North are staying here. We saw many older ladies occupied with needlework, filling in artsy coloring books, etc. to pass their time. The littlest kids here spend a lot of time driving. See their parking lot.

Misgav Am

Actually it happened on the evening of December 11 that our-longtime friend, Betzelah, who addressed us many times at Misgav Am came to the Ramat Hotel to speak to us. (This very brave and strong man gave me a long-lasting bear hug that spoke volumes.)

MIGDAL ARBEL PRAYER AND STUDY CENTER

I didn’t sleep well last night anticipating today.
How would it feel to see, to touch, what has been a “call” for more than twenty years.
I don’t call it a dream. Because I can’t truly say it is my dream.
It is a “call.” Something the Lord called me to do. Something He prepared me for. Step by step. Providing amazing confirmations along the way. Comforting me. Urging me never to quit. And I would even venture to say, giving me “the gift of faith” for it.

Ariel, Shiloh

A highlight of the day for me was being with longtime friends. Each one lit up and hugged me like I’ve never been hugged.
Many don’t come to this area because it is on what the world calls the west bank. I have been bringing groups here since 1986. And in that time, I’ve developed relationships with some of the most remarkable people living here in Shomron

Tel Aviv, Mount Carmel

The large square formerly called Tel Aviv Art Museum Square has been renamed The Kidnapped Square. Here families, friends, and concerned Israelis gather to honor and await news of the hostages. A giant digital clock counts the days, hours, and minutes of their captivity. On the 63rd day, our 63-person Solidarity Tour went to the square to demonstrate that we stand solidly with them.
