As I continue to get messages and replies, I have been released from On High to share my sentiments on Israel, Palestine and beyond.
An open letter to those who say,
“NO! DON’T GO THERE!”
Thank you so much for your comment. I am incredibly pleased to hear from you. The gift of this educational tour is to see the conglomeration of the bitter and beautiful. The goal of Passages Israel and COGIC World Missions is to provide an authentic experience of Israel.
Although much that I’ve experienced has been magnificently overwhelming because of the Biblical historical context while visiting, I’ve also witnessed heart wrenching facts right before my eyes and observed the misery that many endure. I’ve touched these people and walked on their grounds in their community.
This is certainly a place to tour.
Yesterday, I gleaned from my students as I taught a new song that neither the students nor I have ever heard. In this segment, we work together on the lesson of discipline. This song is now called, “The Discipline Song.”
As a substitute teacher in my former school district, Papillion-La Vista, I take pleasure in empowering students to take ownership of their lives by being disciplined. No notes were used for this lesson. Instead, I simply allowed the Lord to guide me as I taught.
I had the pleasure of working with many students in this class last year as a paraprofessional, including Mason who is mentioned in the video multiple times. He, along with the other gems in class, truly stood out and sparkled!
A special thanks to all of my teachers throughout the years from the Papillion-La Vista School District, Oral Roberts University, China, Saudi Arabia, my parents and grandparents, and countless members of my community who have rendered lessons throughout my life.
