Life is meant to be lived to the fullest. I am here to serve God and encourage others on their journey, and since I have ‘shared in Israel’s spiritual blessings, I am here to be of service to Israel in material blessings.’ PCinIsrael serves to keep my loyal readers updated on my work, and what God is doing in the Land where He chose to place His Name. So sit up and read on.
Caesarea Maritima (2006); this was part of the palace area where the Apostle Paul/Rav Shaul stood trial before Felix and Festus in Acts 24-26.
On the Mt. of Olives, here’s me on the camel, with the Temple Mount in the background across the Kidron Valley.
In Joppa, Me talking with a Greek Orthodox priest from Ukraine; he is a Jewish believer in Yeshua/Jesus.
At the overlook on the Mt. of Olives with a view of the Old City walls as well as modern Western Jerusalem in the distance.
Haas Promenade overlooking Jerusalem and Judean Desert to the east. About a 10 minute walk from my apt. From this vantage point atop a ridge overlooking Jerusalem’s Old City and the Dead Sea, tradition holds that Abraham was shown Mount Moriah as the site for the binding of Isaac as recorded in the Bible. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talpiot
Me at Caesarea-11 years later, December 2017
On the descent of the “Snake Path” at the desert fortress Masada which overlooks the Dead Sea.
At a restaurant in Tel Aviv with my American friend Brandon and Israeli friend, who is a native born Israeli and Yom Kippur War veteran.
Me at Gamla, December 2017
Lookin’ out my front door…
Having coffee and cookies with friends from HOI in the Muslim Quarter of the Old City. After the ladies went shopping, John, Chuck and I roamed around and got to talk with some Muslim guys about Yeshua/Jesus, and encouraged them to read about Him in the Gospels.
Getting ready for a camel ride on the Mt. of Olives. I got to share the Good News of Messiah with my Arab friend here.
A brand new Israeli flag: Home Sweet Home way from Home! Shabbat Shalom!
At En Gedi where David and his men hid out from King Saul (see 1 Samuel 23:29). Here on this occasion these Israeli kids pressed me into going into the water pool to look for a pair of glasses one of them had lost. The water was VERY COLD! 🙂
Me on the Temple Mount in front of the Dome of the Rock
Check it out! For my ‘going away party’ from HOI, Laurie Taylor made this cake, with Psalm 122:1-2 on it: “I was glad when they said to me, “Let us go to the house of the Lord.” Our feet are standing within your gates, O Jerusalem.” It was almost too beautiful to eat…almost, but we ate it anyway! Thanks Laurie! 🙂
