My sabbatical month in the Holy Land has been a wonderful and memorable experience, with many highlights along the way. It has lived up to the title of ‘Come and See’ and provided stimulation for body, mind and spirit. There have been excellent presentations/seminars by leading Arab and Messianic Christians, visits to many of the famous sites throughout the country, opportunities to worship at a variety ofchurches, and visits to local projects and Christian communities/missions. I have hiked in the countryside, swam in Lake Galilee and the Dead Sea and jogged through the streets of Nazareth. Throughout, there has been time for personal prayer, reflection and meeting with the Lord. A particular joy has been to meet with local believers and hear their testimonies of the goodness and faithfulness of God at all times, so that I comeaway with a deeper appreciation of the challenges and issues they face, combined with a renewed trust and hope in the plans and purposes of God for his people here.
