For years, especially since we started realizing the significance of the Sabbath & Feasts, I have wanted to visit Israel. My husband always said, “No. We will wait unit there is no threat of war.” I reminded him that we have both read “the Book” and that time will not happen–no threat of war –until Messiah comes to save his people. About 3 months ago he agreed to go, we booked the tickets & I said it would be an adventure— and then watched a new and much escalated war break out. We’ve had no thought of canceling the trip because I feel it must be His will and timing since my husband and I AGREED when to go and how long to stay!! (a miracle) People ask me if I’m worried about safety issues. Well, maybe a little. We will be flying through Chicago and New York City, two of the most dangerous cities in America. We might get a little extra exercise running for a bomb shelter in Israel, but the older we get, the more important it is to stay active, right? Anyway, it’s something we’ve never done, so will be a unique experience.
It’s a little complicated figuring out all the technical issues with booking, what to take, transportation, what to wear, hair appliances, shekels vs. dollars, TSA requirements, etc. etc. NOW I know why people book tours. But I like to learn and this WILL be a learning experience.
So, if you have an interest, you can follow along as we leave in a few days & I will post comments & pictures as I am able. Any tips from those who have made the trip are welcome.
