Hello to whoever reads this!
A lot is happening and an update is needed!
I apologize for not answering your comments and questions... (I promise to do so in December, when the project is finished!! Promise!) The clock is ticking and in two months, everything has to be finished, there's no way around it. About the Israel trip
, everything went well- it was an amazing experience traveling over this land filled with Bible history, digging in the old mound of Tel Lachish and meeting so many amazing people, who became like family. I'm very thankful to those who made this trip possible and to the people I met. (I hope to be able to actually talk to you once the project is finished!!)
Unfortunately, about halfway through our trip, as you saw on the news, missiles from Hamas started flying over our heads where we were staying. Long story short, we are all ok, and since things didn't cool down between Israel and the Gaza strip, the leaders of the archeological project had to close the dig for this season, and we left for home. Even though all of this craziness happened (complete with running to bunkers, sirens, and plenty of booming explosions) this was new even to the leaders, who have been doing these digs in Israel for years. Even so, I don't regret having gone. This craziness happened after a lot got done in the dig, where they discovered many jars, some pagan figurines (people in there were straying from God when Nebuchadnezzar destroyed the city) and even some bulla! (ancient seals).
I'm very thankful to have been part of the team, drawing maps! (To the people who went)-Thank you so very much for this time. I will treasure it. As for the Eternal Redemption project:
I don't know how to explain it, or make sense of it! But the paintings are almost making themselves! I really believe God is going to make this project a reality. There is no human way I can finish 15 paintings in 3 months. But The project is nearing completion, and the 15 paintings that are in progress are moving forward very, very fast. Thank you to all of you who have been praying, it's working!! This is the last leg of the race, only God can make it "float" to the finish line. There is no other way it'll get finished.
So with that said, thank you to all who have or are praying,
Back to the project!
P.S. Here is a "peek" at one of the unfinished paintings : ) (all glory to Him, He's making this happen.)
