God in Motion – Scotland, Highlands

October 11, 2015

Life with Chloe is a life lived in prayer. She is so wonderful at taking everything and I mean everything to the Lord in prayer. It brings a whole new meaning to pray without ceasing. I learn a lot from my little girl! Yesterday as we got on the bus to the Wallace Monument, our […]

Wally World – Scotland, Glasgow/Stirling

October 10, 2015

After a very long five hour flight from Halifax to Glasgow we arrived in Scotland as the sun was rising. In order to enter the country we needed to go through customs. This is usually a non-event, but our trip is not a usual one. The customs agent asked who we knew in the country […]

Jerusalem, Israel – The Long Way Home

April 19, 2014

When setting up this trip we really did not understand what it meant to be in Israel during Passover. Our original plan was to spend the day at Mini Israel, which is a thirteen acre exhibit that includes all of Israel in miniature form. We found out it was closed for Passover. The entire country […]

Jerusalem, Israel – Jesus in Disguise

April 15, 2014

Kendall nailed it with her last post on Jerusalem. We both had an expectation that being in Jerusalem would draw us closer to the Lord as we walked where he walked and visited places he would have visited. God usually speaks to me with a still small voice, one that I can hear much more […]

April 14, 2014

Today was our day in Palestine (West Bank), as we toured Hebron and Bethlehem. When Kendall decided Israel and wanted to do some sights in the Palestinian territory I decided we would hire a local guide and I am glad I did. Our guide, Sam Salem (, picked us up at our hotel and then […]

Jerusalem, Israel – Taking the Plunge

April 13, 2014

Kendall and I got up this morning and got to enjoy a full on banquet breakfast. We have stayed at apartments mostly, so this was our first real hotel experience in Israel. I got a deal online, so we are in a business class hotel, and it is very nice. After breakfast we made our […]

Masada/En Gedi/Dead Sea, Israel – Highs and Lows

Timna/Camel Land, Israel – Canyons and Camels

April 10, 2014

On our way out of Eilat today we made a stop at Timna National Park. Kendall found us a trail marked “easy” on the map that started with a steep climb up to ladder rungs embedded in sandstone. Up we climbed through a natural arch, dropping into a slot canyon on the other side. There […]

Eilat, Israel – Birds under the Sea

April 8, 2014

Kendall felt a little ruined out (though she stills loves ruins), so when presented with the opportunity to go to Petra or stay at the beach, she chose the beach.  Eilat has an underwater observation that is supposed to be top notch. We were told the sunlight reflecting through the water is best from 11a-1p, […]
