Cris and I had the experience of a lifetime on the January 2010 Israel trip. We are so thankful to Father’s House for sending us and our friends Pastor Armand and Lilybelle Valdez to the Holy Land, where we joined some US church groups on a wonderful ten-day tour.
Recently I have presented slideshows of our pictures from Israel to students of our Calvary Bible Institute (both Day and Night classes) in Davao City. It has made a huge difference for me to have been to so many of the sites in Israel and to have been guided by such a knowledgeable Jewish guide as Moshe Bronstein. I feel like I can now talk about the Biblical places with a bit of authority and certainly with insight that I didn’t have before. The students were fascinated by the pictures and the commentary. Many of them would love to go to Israel now!
I know Cris and I have a heart to go back to Israel and see even more of that wonderful country. God has truly turned our hearts toward “home”– here on earth, our true original home is in Israel.
God bless Father’s House!
Love in Christ,
Rev. Ken & Cris Sandberg
