YWA in Israel 2018 Testimonials:

Ashley Henson, YWA President at the University of Alabama: “How could I ever begin to describe the 10 days that changed my life forever? this land and its people have touched my life in countless ways. I watched as the pages of the Bible came to life before me, and God revealed Himself to me through every place and person. I felt His presence like I never have before, and I left with an indescribable peace that I never imagined I could feel.  I went on this trip expecting to find a nation ravaged by years of war, a people exhausted from constant tension. instead I found a nation of joy. every person I encountered, no matter their religion or nationality, greeted me with a smile and a joke. despite the conflict in the region, hope lives on in the people who call Israel home. I pray that hope never fades. I pray that we, as Americans, can one day feel even a fraction of that hope for our nation. I pray that we never take for granted the freedom and security we are blessed with. and I pray that we never forget those who struggle around the world for the same freedom and security.”

 

Valeria Tkacik, former YWA President at Ave Maria University: “My Israeli experience was more than great, it was life changing. From Nazareth to the Western Wall, I felt God’s presence everywhere I went. When I shared a smile or a laugh with any of my YWA members, I knew that I shared that moment with Jesus himself. I cannot wait to see how God blesses these girls’ lives! So thankful to travel to the Holy Land with my concerned women!! — “To fall in love with God is the greatest romance; to seek him the greatest adventure; to find him, the greatest human achievement.” ~ St. Augustine of Hippo”
