Well many of you may or may not know that J-Life ministries is partners with GYI (Global youth initiative). Their vision of spreading the gospel though youth and doing ministry like Jesus did is much the same as ours. You ask, what does this involve Israel? Well, they take about 30 people each year and teach them over a 2 week time period the life and death of Jesus. In real time hold the stone swim in the Sea of Galilee kind of teaching. Only 3-4 of our Jlife trainers get to go each year. David went 2 years back but since others were ‘in line’ to go and I had to stay with the children, I didn’t go.
Well, a family trip has come in the works for next March/April trip. John Abrahamse is leading this group. The question is not do I want to go because of course who wouldn’t want to go?? To see, feel, touch, smell and taste the places where Christ did ministry. Out training with Jlife is based on how Christ did ministry.
But, either we take all 4 of us or maybe I just go with Matthew who at the age of 14 is prime for learning and seeing the Bible in living color!
Please pray that we would know clearly what to do and who to take. I hate to hope and get excited about it.
Pray clearly that finances would be worked out and we would use our money the wisest way.
Pray that the unrest in some of those areas would settle during the coming months.
