We made it! We are in Israel!

Praise the Lord! We are now outside of TelAviv in a beach city called "Hertziliyya". I chose this site to begin our first day in Israel because it is a beautful hotel right next to the Mediteranean Sea. I took this photo just a few minutes ago from our hotel view. We plan on getting a little more rest (we got in from the airport at 4:30am) then I will take the group from Okinawa down to the old city of Jaffa (Joppa), this is the second oldest city in the world. You might remember the Bible story, there was this guy, Jonah who ran from the Lord. He went down to Joppa and took a boat, trying to get as far away from the Lord as possible. Also, in the book of Acts, Peter was on the roof of Simon the Tanners house, and there recieved a vision from the Lord, that he was to go down to Cornelius' house and share with them the Love of Jesus Christ. The rest is history, the Gentiles hear and recieve the Gospel message of Jesus Christ.
Also, today we will be taking Takako and leaving her to minister at CCTelAviv to help the Apple's with ministry for the rest of the time we are in the Holy Land. Please pray for Takako, we know that the Lord is going to do wonderful things through her, as she serves the Lord here in Israel. Pastor Tommy
