I am so incredibly excited right now, I do not know whether to run, jump, dance or… Doors to a long time dream to spent time in The Land have just opened up!
Here’s the scoop!!
Yes, I have long wanted to visit the Land of our fathers, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, but have been content to wait. Early last Fall I received an invitation to participate in a conference in May 2015, but because we were packing to move with no place to go and because I saw no financial way to participate, I put the invite on the shelf and forgot about it.
A few weeks ago a friend asked me if I have any needs in ministry that they might be able to help out with, and at the time I knew of nothing, so I thanked them and politely declined. Then a couple days ago, as I read Al McCarn’s new book, I was reminded of the conference and it purpose: It is the First Ephramite/Northern Israel National Congress, details at link. I was prompted to pray and ask if this was something I needed to pursue. Since then, it has been confirmed a couple ways and my friend has offered to help, but asked me to give you, my readers and friends the opportunity to share in this project with your own help.
The conference is two days after Shavuot, so most attendees plan to arrive before the Feast for prayer and fellowship before the business nature of the Congress. Cost for airfare for Kelly and myself will be $2500 plus $156/day for hotel (includes breakfast and dinner). Other incidentals will include Hanoch Young taking some of us on a tour for a couple days as well as taxis, tips, etc… Total will be in the $4000 range.
Please pray and ask Abba if this might be something He would have you help to fund. I hope to be of service to the Congress as a willing worker and participant in discussing and seeking to help implement a plan that will begin to bring the dry bones together for the world to see.
Any who feel led to help with both prayer and/or finances, please contact me at natsab2013 (at) gmail.com.
I look forward to writing and blogging from Northern Israel at Shavuot.
