From February 28th to March 10th, I will be traveling with the Vocare program of Azusa Pacific University throughout Israel. The Vocare program at Azusa Pacific University is a four to five year, Bachelor to Masters program. I plan on receiving my Bachelor's degree in business marketing and my master's degree in Pastoral Studies.
I can't describe my excitement for this trip. All the people I have spoken to that has visited Israel have told me how awesome the trip was. Ever since I was little, I have grown up learning about the "God of Israel;" I have been heard story after story about God providing for Israel. To finally visit this place in person, I am ecstatic. I have never traveled so far from the United States...the furthest I have been internationally is a resort in Mexico. I am truly looking forward to seeing a new culture and how different societies operate.
Here are just a few of possible places on our itinerary:
• Mt. Precipice
• Synagogue of Magdala
• The Mt. of the Beatitudes
• The Sea of Galilee
• Golan Heights
• Ascend Mt. Bernal
• The City of David
• The Southern Wall Excavations
• Hear a Lecture on Biblical/Christian Zionism
• Mt. Zion
• Via Delorosa
• Participate in US-Israel Relationship Session
• The Dead Sea
• Hear about Israeli Politics and Jewish Christian Relations
• Independence Hall
Throughout the trip, I plan on writing on this site about the adventures, stories I'll hear, the food I eat, and the places I go. Feel free to check-in, post questions or comments, and I will try my best to answer them!
