I would appreciate your prayers as I travel to Israel and the West Bank. I leave Wednesday, January 23, 2019 and will fly from O’Hare to Newark and then on to Tel Aviv. I will return to O’Hare the evening of January 30, 2019.
I am traveling with Bishops Laurie Skow-Anderson (Northwest Synod of Wisconsin) and Patricia Davenport (Southeastern Pennsylvania Synod) along with two Churchwide staff persons. This delegation was formed to meet with Bishop Sani Ibrahim Azar and learn about the ministries of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Jordan and the Holy Land. Most of our time will be spent in the West Bank with a day trip or two to Jerusalem.
