Hello there, friend...

We find ourselves in an interesting season. It seems like we're waiting, and yet we're not bored. The L-rd is exploding our minds with His plans for our future, and we are getting more acquainted with His dramatic ways. I think it's part of His nature to keep us on our toes, to challenge us to trust more. Recently I was blessed with this passage in Psalms 36:8-10 (CJB):

How precious, G-d, is your grace!
People take refuge in the shadow of your wings,
they feast on the rich bounty of your house,
and you have them drink from the stream of your delights.
For with You is the fountain of life;
in Your light we see light.

I was invited to drink from the stream of G-d's delights. It's like enjoying a food you never knew existed. G-d's delights are greater than our imaginations, His goodness exceeds all boundaries we set forth. I am ready to wet my lips with the wonderful things of the L-rd, even though I don't know what that will look like. We do know that He is sending the three of us on an adventure to an old land to find out more about who He is. Our days are filled with planning and studying, our nights are filled with prayers and dreams. We are getting a taste of the beautiful things of the L-rd and want more.

We invite you to come along with us, to journey into this revelation of Jew and Gentile joining together in unity. Perhaps you barely know us and wonder what this even means. Then please, grab a cup of coffee, or a glass of iced tea, and read through the pages listed above. We've tried to lay out who we are and our plans, as much as we know, so that you can partner with us. Our personal history reveals that prayer is essential to pursuing the L-rd, so please, take a moment and talk with Him. Ask Him to show you what this means for your life, and what you're supposed to do. And more than anything, thank Him for being the G-d who hears. Because He does, friends, He waits to hear your voice say His name, and He longs for you to drink from the streams of His delights.
