Missions Trip to Israel 2011
In March 2011, 27 Verity students from the Class of 2011 traveled to Israel for the trip of a lifetime.
Our expectations were high even though there was a lot of uncertainty with our itinerary. Although it looked like a tour, we had many opportunities to share the love of Christ with the Jews and everyone that we met.
We spent three days in Northern Israel around the Galilee region before traveling down to the Judean Wilderness by the Dead Sea. After spending a night at a kibbutz, we traveled to the Holy City of Jerusalem. The last three days in Jerusalem were a whirlwind of sightseeing stops, ministry oportunities, and personal reflection time.
Everywhere we went, the Bible came to life before our eyes. We experienced the Israeli food and culture, but the Israeli people we encountered made the most impact on the team. Overall, God taught each and every one of us individual lessons about His Word that we will cherish forever.
“The trip to Israel revealed new dimensions of Biblical truth” —Peter Rupp
