Living at Ground Zero

Desert paths are at times difficult to navigate. For one thing, they’re hard to see. For another, they can seemingly lead to no where and then WOW your long-awaited destination appears. 

Our desert paths have led us to various countries and situations through the years, but always to beautiful people whose lives have enriched our own.

Now in one of those WOW moments, the path has led us to Ground Zero: Israel/Palestine. The place where Jesus walked, taught and demonstrated what it meant for “God to be with us.” This was the starting place, the ground zero, the origin of Christianity. 

It also serves as our starting place for a new season, a new desert path as it were. So we pray:

“May God our Father himself and our Master Jesus clear the road to you! And may the Master pour on the love so it fills your lives and splashes over on everyone around you, just as it does from us to you. May you be infused with strength and purity, filled with confidence in the presence of God our Father when our Master Jesus arrives with all his followers” (1 Thess. 3: 11-13, MSG).  

Our Journey

We learn much from our desert friends and always from Jesus. We write about those lessons here.

13 Must-Know Tips Before You Fly

Why we’ve chosen the global worker life...

After owning our own business for many years, we felt like it was time to “give something back.” We’ve always had a heart to serve others in challenging locations. But why? Because we’re followers of Jesus, and we take His teachings seriously. He had (and has) a heart for people…all people, everywhere. We as His followers want to demonstrate His love and light in some of the “least lit” places and to help build the capacity of people, communities, and nations.
