For months I’ve not written on the blog mainly because I was using the “Come to Israel” post as a reference for people to learn about our trip.
This past week we came to the deadline for sign-ups and found ourselves short of the original goal. I was obviously disappointed to have to cancel the trip and to tell the group that had committed that we’d have to wait until next time. Jennifer and the entire team at Maranatha Tours has been a great group to work with and have even provided another tour for those from our group that still want to go.
As I told the group in my letter, I really do trust God’s leading in these areas. Of course I wanted to go, as did they. However, I knew going into it that it was a pretty significant trip. I’m a little bummed but I also know that it’s all good.
When Laurie and I went 2 years ago, I knew I’d love to return, but I also knew that if that was the only time I’d go, I was so thankful. Perhaps someday we’ll return.
