We traveled quickly from Ben Gurion to Mashabei Sade
Our bodies haven’t caught up to our distance of 8,000 miles
Hearts and minds are focused on the morning
Our touring will begin and we will see Israel

It is very different from our home, an understatement
We have deep spiritual ties to this place, this land called Israel
Stop one will be Beersheva, the Well of Oath
Our learning begins here at an event 3,500 years ago

An oath created security for Abraham and his people
His oath assured them of a home and a place to belong
Abraham’s oath enabled them to have community
This place they lived was their own

We gave an oath to Christ -He gave us new life
The Lord is in our life-the Holy Spirit leads us
We live our life by our oath, Jesus I belong to You
Our eternity began then; our new life in Christ

Our tour begins it is a journey of discovery
We will be surprised by some of what we see
The Lord will speak to us somewhere along the way
I will pray with you as you walk the “Land of the Bible”
