Prepare yourself for a life-changing missions trip experience!
After commissioning, you bus to the Orlando In- ternational Airport and fly to JFK International Airport in New York. Your next flight takes you across the Atlantic Ocean, France, Italy and the Mediterranean Sea to Tel Aviv, Israel.
Your journey continues by bus as you travel through the scenic countryside over the rugged hills of Jerusalem, and on past Rachel’s Tomb to Bethlehem, the hometown of King David and birthplace of Jesus Christ. There is much physical work to be done, but even greater spiritual blessings are in store for you as you minister in this historical land. Sundays will be spent sharing Christ in local Arab Christian churches.
The team will be working in Beit Jala at the Hope Secondary School, begun by Arab Christians in 1961, where young Arab boys receive Christian teaching in addition to their secondary education. What a thrill to realize that the valley seen from the school is the traditional bat- tleground of David and Goliath! Enjoy devotions as you look over the city of Jerusalem, just eight miles away.
Your project will be to paint the classrooms and dorm rooms of those who board at the school. You will also repair the fencing around the property and do gardening. Housing is in dorms with showers available. In Bethlehem you will see the Church of the Nativity and Shepherds Field. Nearby are the Wailing Wall and the Dome of the Rock, where Solomon built the temple.
Souvenirs available include olive wood carvings, glassware, mother-of-pearl jewelry and brassware by local craftsman. Whether you walk through the Old City or visit Gethsemane, The Garden Tomb, or Golgotha, you will never be the same!
