Greetings Friends and Family,
After two straight days of travel we are finally back at Hume Lake and in the Joshua building. Everyone is really tired and jetlagged (10 hour time changes are a killer) but we are all still overwhelmed by what we have had the opportunity to experience these past two weeks. What a blessing to walk the Bible and see it come alive right in front of us. I think every student would tell you that all the study and long hours of classes were well worth it and that they will never read the Bible the same way again. As the director of Joshua I was so proud of the students with how they took every opportunity to soak in the teachings and make the most out of their time in Israel. I hope that you soon get to hear the amazing life changing stories that came from this adventure. Our desire as a staff was that through the blog you were able to catch a glimpse of what your students were experiencing. As you can imagine the days were full with 6 am wake up calls, full days of hiking and seeing sites and then not getting back to the hotels until after 7 pm. I personally wanted to take a second and thank the Joshua staff for their hard work every day to capture photos, audio teachings and make wrap up videos each day. Chad, Bret, Jenna, Jen and Jenae went above and beyond to not only gather all the media but to then work at night to get it uploaded to the website.
I just wanted to acknowledge them and leave you an opportunity to post a comment about your experience following the blog. Also if you use Facebook we would encourage you to click here and “like” GTI tours and leave them a little comment of thanks on their page. Without them this trip would not have happened and we are extremely grateful for their partnership with Joshua.
Thanks again for following the Joshua blog
