Israel Day 4 / PM: Art Class at The Warm Home
 

In 2011, King's Daughters helped get The Warm Home, a counseling program for teenage girls, off the ground. We continue to support the home with our business and love what God is doing to through the program in the lives of Israel's next generation.

Ginnie Johnson writes about the wonderful Warm Home visit:

After 4 years of supporting the Warm Home we finally get to spend a day with the precious teen girls in the program! Our Tuesday afternoon visit was an amazing day of connection. We brought a " Name Art " watercolor project to bring out each girl's creativity. We expressed God's love for them by sharing God's heart behind the art. "I have called you by name and you are Mine says the Lord " Isaiah 43:1

The after school director Rina translated their comments bit by bit throughout our joyous two hours. It was unanimous that they were all experiencing the most fun day and they didn't want it to end! Each girl created a unique piece of art in her own style and colors to hang in her room. 

We painted, sang. learned English, learned Hebrew, enjoyed a special cake Rina cooked, hugged, admired their art, and lingered until 7! Cant wait to see all the girls again later in 2016.

 
Israel Trip Day 3: Opening of the Ron Nachman Memorial & Pioneer Museum
 

Background info: the Johnson family has a 20 year relationship with the Nachmans and King's Daughters gives a percentage of every sale to philanthropies in the city of Ariel. Ron Nachman passed away three years ago so Ginnie and Sarah traveled to Ariel to celebrate the opening of the Ron Nachman Memorial and Pioneer Museum.

38 years ago, the hill you are looking at was called "the hill of death." There was no life and no vision for growth. But God called one man to found a city in the hills of Judea and Samaria...and this hill of death transformed into a thriving city of life, innovation, and Israeli spirit. 

That man's name is Ron Nachman. Here is his story:

Today, we celebrated the life and legacy of Ron Nachman, with the opening of the Ron Nachman Memorial and Pioneer Museum (pictured below). 

What an honor for Sarah to sing her original song, "Peace Over You," at the event! 150 Jewish attendees got to hear the words that the Lord gave Sarah during her first trip to Israel in 2011, "We pray peace over you. Nothing broken, nothing bruised. Shattered pieces while again. Missing parts found in Adonai." One man came up to Sarah and said, "I looked around and saw people's eyes tearing up. You touched their hearts." Praise God!
