The day of the trip came. When i reached Istanbul airport, I felt a surge of energy gushing throughout my veins. When I stepped foot into Tel Aviv, my body felt hot and I felt this indescribable power in me. When I was at the Church of Transfiguration, i felt the Holy Spirit came into me like a hot flush and found myself weeping while I was praying. Being in the Holy Land was different from reading the bible. The feeling was indescribable. It was also the first time after many years that my daughter Natasha and me are travelling together. We were like the best of friends and had a wonderful time together. This trip is God’s way of bonding us and a special gift to us spending Mother’s Day in the Holy Land. I want to thank God for giving me this present. After the trip, i felt very peaceful and look forward to going back to the Holy Land again. God may not necessarily answer our prayers in our time, but in His time!
