We’re Still Here! (but “here” isn’t Israel)

Hi all!  We’ve sort of disappeared from the blogosphere for the last few months…but we’re still here!  “Here” just happens to be across the ocean in the United States instead of in Jerusalem (we’ll be headed back to Israel soon, though).   Let me give you a quick rundown on what we’ve been up to.

Our last post in June announced the release of our newest video, The Soul Shepherd, which is receiving a very positive response and seems to be what we’d hoped for – a powerful, but gentle  tool, showing people’s deep need for Christ, and His deep desire to rescue and shepherd all “lost sheep”.  Thank you to our home church, Lighthouse Christian Fellowship, in Twin Falls, ID for the premier showing!

No sooner was The Soul Shepherd launched, than it was time to dig, dig, dig!  The Mount Zion Archaeological dig kicked off in mid-June Mt. Zion Digthrough July and with it came much shoveling and sweating.  I had the privilege of overseeing a great dig crew who tirelessly, cheerfully and tenaciously “moved dirt”.  The official results of the dig still await publishing, after which I can give you more details of what we found (nope – no Ark of the Covenant).

The end of July began our shift from “here” to “there”.  Cathy and the kids headed home to the US for some  time with grandparents, then I followed in August after completing post-dig logistics.  Since returning to the States, we’ve enjoyed some much-needed family vacation time.  And, in the last week, I’ve begun having some church showings of  The Soul Shepherd and giving a new presentation, The Divine King, which explores five ancient archaeological finds and how they point to Christ and prove the reliability of the Bible!  For any of you in Utah and Idaho who are near enough, I’d love to have you join me!  Here is my upcoming speaking schedule:

9/25  Wed. Calvary Chapel SLC The Soul Shepherd 7 pm
9/29  Sun. Calvary Chapel SLC The Divine King 9 am, 11 am & 1pm
10/6 Sun Cal. Chapel Pocatello The Divine King 9am and 11am
Cal. Chapel Pocatello The Soul Shepherd 6 pm
10/12 Sat. Cal. Chapel Idaho Falls Inerrancy of the Bible 7 pm
10/13 Sun. Cal. Chapel Idaho Falls The Divine King 9:30 am & 11:30 am
Cal. Chapel Idaho Falls The Soul Shepherd 6 pm

Thank you to all who’ve inquired about us, and we will be posting new video shorts as soon as we return to Jerusalem  in October!

Blessings,

Joel

    Loved seeing your new movie “The Soul Shepard” in Twin Falls. But what I loved more was the topic you spoke about that morning. Linking ancient artifacts with the bible and how it relates to the truth of Jesus is undeniably exciting! Thanks for all you are doing.

      Thank you for that encouragement, Aaron. It was very helpful to me to be present that material and see that it connects and is meaningful. Thank you for taking the time to let me know!

    So glad we caught up with you at Calvary Chapel today. Your talk was very informative & inspiring. I plan on looking up the scriptures you talked about and study them tonight.

    As we mentioned to you at Calvary today, we were part of the MRM trip to Israel last March (Eric Johnson & Bill McKeever). We have been big fans of yours ever since. Also watched the “Soul Shepherd” DVD, just fantastic. You told the message of the Gospel in such a beautiful, inspiring way. We plan on purchasing several copies for Christmas presents.

    How is everything on the West Bank? : ) Take Care. -Larry & Phyllis Greenwood

    Hello, I missed a good portion of your introduction at calvary SLC sunday the12th. as I serve In the children’s rain forest for the 9 AM check in, needless to say a recorder or note pad would have been beneficial, time line history all that was predicted and was seen to be fulfilled, I get goose bumps thinking it, so has anyone requested your presentation notes? If so, good where may I obtain them? If not Why the Heavens to Betsy not, may I be your first? Your presentation brought up a tingleing in my spirit and I am thirsty for more, if I might be so bold to ask? I missed Saturday’s presentation but reviewed the introduction on the soul Shepard , a must have when I fullfill some other financial commitments, thank you again, it was impressive and awe jaw dropping, a beautiful tool to have when speaking to the lost to be found, God Bless you and your family, be safe, Tami
