It was a joy to
help show Israel to my volunteer assistant (for 15 years) – Terry Distin
with an added joy that his mother was able to go also. And then they
both were bubbly with joy, and now understand with me how frustrating
it is to relay to others what they saw and heard in Israel. But they have
consented to tell of their trip in this issue of Bible Light on the
Impressions of Israel by Terry Distin
A Baptist Christian’s Visit to Israel by Lila Distin.
Planting Date Palms in the Desert introduces a new Bible Light
project in Israel.
For seven years you
have helped Bible Light with our projects at Ma’ale Michmas (about 15 miles
NE of Jerusalem). This consisted of an almond orchard, a fence around it and
irrigation lines. We have also lined a street named after Ilan Ramon, the
Israeli astronaut who lost his life in the Columbia disaster; helped up-date
their ambulance and purchased radios for security needs. Michmas friends and
I are very grateful for your help in this. These projects are all now in the
capable hands of the community of Ma’ale Michmas.
The Bible Light Board
has decided to begin a new project in which you can continue to participate
by purchasing Date Palms in a most needy area – the Southern desert region
of Israel. This can be done in memory, or in honor, of a loved one or
friend. Terry Distin has prepared a beautiful certificate suitable for
framing that will be yours (or sent to another if you wish) when you
purchase one or more Date Palms.
