March 15 has finally arrived. It is time to begin our adventure to Israel. Browells arrived from PA yesterday afternoon and Tim Payne made it home last evening from NC, so our team is all in town.
The picture shows the early morning conditions as Blizzard Stella, which hit Central PA and the east coast, touched us here as well. We are leaving a little early (1:00 p.m.) to give plenty of time to arrive three hours ahead of our flight from Pearson International in Toronto at 7:30 p.m.
I rejoiced with those who said to me,
“Let us go to the house of the Lord.”
2 Our feet are standing
in your gates, Jerusalem.
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem:
“May those who love you be secure.
7 May there be peace within your walls
and security within your citadels.”
8 For the sake of my family and friends,
I will say, “Peace be within you.”
9 For the sake of the house of the Lord our God,
I will seek your prosperity.
