Today is the day!

I cannot believe it is finally here. Today is the day that I fly to Israel. It seems the last 7 months flew on past so fast!

I am nervous about the flight (not even going to try to hide that), but I am so excited to see what God has in store for me on this trip. It is an amazing opportunity to be able to truly walk where Jesus walked, to actually experience the Dead Sea in person, (among other Bible stories) and to learn even more about how it was like for Jesus to walk this earth. To be able to walk on a path knowing that my God's feet have touched this exact ground.

I hope to not only get closer to the Lord through this next week, but to see God's plan revealed through my life. To live out His will in every moment. I don't want this trip to just put me on fire for Jesus for one week or even two after the trip. I want this to be an out-of-this-world-crazy-life-changing experience that really shows me God's love.

I want to be able to come home and be a stronger Christian, a better witness and an amazingly on fire follower of God. I want to be different. I can't wait to cling to every word and place that we see this next week. I already feel God working in my life. I know He has a plan. I know that this trip is a blessing.

I want to be changed.

WOW. Jenna....first off, you were to sleep in today....what happened? Nyquil didn't work? :-)

I want for you everything you wrote here, too. I love you and am so proud of the young lady you have become.....a LONG way from that little 5 year old girl in the video.

Can NOT wait to hear all about how God worked through the trip.
