If you could travel to one place in the world, where would it be? For many of us who love the Lord and His Holy Scriptures that place is Israel, the Holy Land, God's back yard! Israel is the epicenter of the earth. In Israel you are standing on biblical history and walking on biblical prophecy. There is no other Real Estate like it in the world.
From Dan to BeerSheva (north to south), from the Mediterranean Sea to the Salt Sea (west to east), from the heights of the Golan to the lowest place in the world, the Dead Sea, we go to bless the vineyard of Israel. Our primary mission is to "perfume" the land of Israel with the aroma of Messiah. Our mission is to take the Good News of God's salvation in Yeshua back to where it came from, the people and the land of Israel. Our desire is to obey the biblical mandate of missions,"to the Jew first and also to the Gentiles" according to the protocol of missions given in Acts 1:8 and Romans 1:16.
Our mission is also to visit and encourage CMI missionary-representatives living in Israel, to enjoy sweet fellowship with the messianic Hebrew-Christian congregations we support in Israel, and to meet and love native Sabras, those Jews born in Israel who are likened to the sabra cactus which is prickly on the outside, but very sweet on the inside. We will encounter one-on-one the kibbutzniks living in the kibbutzim in Israel where we lodge, who will ask us, "why of all places in the world, did you come to Israel?" We will meet and say Salam to nomadic Bedouins, the Druze, Palestinians, Muslims, and Jordanian Arabs.
Part of our outreach is also to distribute bibles, books, tracts, and magnets on the boardwalk of Galilee and the promenade of New Jerusalem. We will prayer-walk strategic and prophetic places in the land of Israel where the twelve tribes of Israel are to inherit and one day govern the earth for one-thousand years. We will have intimate conversations about faith and culture with those God providentially brings to us.
One of the hallmarks of a Mission/Tour to Israel is reading the Word of God in the land of the Word of God. A trip to Israel can be more informative, enlightening, educational, even entertaining, and certainly as life-changing as a year of seminary. We invite you to leave the uttermost part of the earth where you live, and journey with us to see, hear, taste, touch, smell, feel, and experience the land Yeshua called home.
