Walking Where Jesus Walked!

2014-04-21 10.40.05Friends, as you read this blog post, Brian and I will be walking in Israel! We are so excited to take this trip, to see the sights Jesus saw and to walk where Jesus walked.

It is not certain when, if, or how frequently I will be posting updates, but I hope to keep you posted on where we are and what we are experiencing.

Please pray for our safety as we travel, and that we might be open to all that the Lord would have us experience, so that we would be filled to overflowing when we return home.

I am already anxious to share this trip with you!

With much love,
