Day1: I am overwhelmed, but happy. I realized that during this whole time of choosing Israel and raising money for this outreach, I was afraid that I wouldn’t love Israel when I arrived. Afraid that I would have to pull up my doer and be distressed the whole time I was here, that I would be serving out of striving and work versus love and rest. And this whole process leading up to the trip I have felt so disconnected to the whole thing and then felt guilty for asking people for money when I wasn’t even sure that I wanted to go. But I do want to be here! And I DO love/feel connected with the land.
Amanda, no need to strive to serve. You are more than enough. Be yourself and Love God
