I am so excited to set sail Saturday with twenty-one other pilgrims for a #trip-of-a-lifetime #epic-adventure to the Holy Land! We will follow in the footsteps of Jesus throughout Israel and then head across the Jordan to follow in the footsteps of Moses. What an exciting time we will have (via, plane, bus, jeep, camel and our own two feet) discovering all that God has waiting for us, unearthing the Spiritual treasure He longs to share with those who seek Him with a hungry heart. We pray we will get to know Him better through experiencing His life first hand: seeing what He saw, walking where He walked, invited into the places of His earthly life. And by broadening our knowledge of Him--learning more about what shaped His world and His words.
Please pray for us! And we will pray for you! If you have a prayer request please click HEREand I will place it on the altar at every Mass at every Holy Sight visited as well as place in the Western Wall at the Temple Mount.
I will be posting regularly onFaceBook and Instagram (melissaovermyer) so please follow along and JOURNEY with us!
And if you live in the DC/MA/VA area please join three-time Grammy winner Ashley Cleveland and I for our local Pilgrimage Retreat"Blessed" April 10 or April 13. It will be held at the Franciscan Monastery of the Holy Land in America where you can experience the Holy Land sights without ever leaving the good ol’ USA! Filling up very fast! Register HERE today!
And now for the packin' list:
Just like on any journey- near or far- of all the things we can pack in our suitcase--the most important item to never leave home without (even if only a trip to the grocery store) is a heart full of PRAISE!
So whether you are staying here or going with us--let’s pack our bag FULL of "blessed" today!
Join me in this song of praise as we, like the saints of old, say:
“Blessed are you, O Lord, the God of our ancestors,
