Hi Mark and Cam,
It was great to see you again. I just wanted to thank you for what you are doing with these trips to Israel. This was my second trip and I wasn't sure if it would be as impacting as the first trip. It was. The change in my life after the first trip 18 months ago has been amazing for me and my family.
I have changed my style of parenting in many ways, I'm teaching my children about the Bible more and I have such a desire to study the Word of God. We pray Shema every day together and every week I pray a blessing over each of my girls. The impact on them, that I can see, has been incredible. I wonder how much change is going on that I am not even aware of.
This change in my life has also impacted my Bible study in what and how I lead it. Through that I was able to bring two of my pastors and a couple friends on this last trip. From their comments, I know the trip was life changing to them as well. I know that this change will now spill over to the rest of our church through my pastor's teaching and leadership.
What you do is unique. A trip to Israel is amazing, but without the teaching you provide, most of what I got out of these trips would not have happened. I believe that 80% of this amazing experience was because of your teaching in that setting and not the setting itself. You have a wonderful gift that is impacting more people than you are aware of.
The two of you work very well together and I felt privileged to be with you again. I pray that you will be able to continue this ministry for many years to come. I would like to come back and bring my wife and children too.
