Day 2 – Mount of Olives, Garden Tomb

Our first full day in Israel was packed with activity — and intentionality — as we carried out our assignment here in the land. You’re probably aware that an Aglow tour of Israel is not just about seeing the sights: this was certainly obvious as Jane briefed the group on our first morning and shared her heart about what it means for us to be “as one” with our Messianic brothers and sisters. Her message to us was clear and powerful, and it prepared our hearts for the prayers and proclamations we’d be making on the Mount of Olives that morning.

After listening to Jane and getting our marching orders, we boarded the buses and made our way to the Mount of Olives. There, we were joined by Asher Intrater and his team, and together we proclaimed “Baruch haba b’Shem Adonai” (Blessed is He who comes in the Name of the Lord”.

We finished the day at the Garden Tomb, where Nonnie shared a powerful message and led us in communion. Druci and I are a bit overwhelmed with everything. It still doesn’t seem real that we’re actually here. To walk where Jesus walked; to be in the Land; to experience — just the atmosphere of the place; it’s incredible.

What a day!

  1. Thank you so much for allowing us at home to take such a real part in the Israel trip. Those of us that have been on an Israel trip before can see and recognize where you are. It brings back such wonderful memories as well as being able to follow right along with what Aglow is doing in Israel in 2015. I am praying for all of you as you fulfill the intentions of God at this pivotal time in the history of Israel and the world!!!
