Going to the Promised Land

David, Micah, and I are heading to Israel bright and early tomorrow morning.  We return eight days later, on a Sunday evening.  We will be meeting my childhood pastor, Dr. Vineyard, there as well as Pastor Garry Way and his wife from Gainesville, Texas, and Kenny and Kimberlyn Cantrell, missionaries to Ecuador.
Please be much in prayer for us.  But mostly please be praying for my three precious children who will be staying here at home with their beloved babysitter Nelya.  I know they are looking forward to having Nelya here, but I am going to miss them somethin' terrible!

I normally turn down offers to go on these trips and just stay at home while hubby goes alone.  This trip is different because my pastor has specificially asked that I go.  Please pray with me, sweet friends, that God will use me for His glory.


  1. Praying!

    Relax and HAVE FUN!!!!

    It was great to talk to you all today, and to see the better side of Baby Micah. Ha!

    Love you bunches!

  2. The photos are so precious! You look beautiful...though that's not unusual. ;) Praying for you all.

  3. You have prayers for traveling mercies and safety both at home and away. May God bless through your trip and may your blessings be enriched in service to others. May He be glorified in all.

  4. Have fun, Jolene! Love you, and pray for you every morning. Take lots of pictures to share :)

  5. Loooooove your pic! Look how tiny you are already! :) Gorgeous! Just read your blog and wanted you to know I'll be praying for your kiddos and you this coming week. I know you'll miss them terribly! But I'm praying that this time will be SO special for you and hubby. *HUGS*

  6. Jolene, I just started praying for you and look forward to updates! Praying for your entire family! And, your new blog look is very pretty, my friend. *Hugs!*
