Trip Report


The following is a brief summary on, how God took our plans for this trip to a level we could have never imagined. Here are 6 critical areas where God generated incredible interest, enthusiasm and results.

  1. Our F/S Ambassadors received an in-depth look at the F/S process and the impact was beyond our wildest expectations.
    • They received freedom by going through their own Fresh Start process.
    • They received in-depth training on how to utilize the F/S process and skits to impact the understanding of the process for future participants.
    • We brainstormed on how they can use F/S to minister to elementary students and adults.
    • They received ideas and visuals on how to utilize props geared toward children for the HL.
  2. The principal who oversees the 1000 Arab student (K-12th) grades, received an in-depth overview of the F/S process.
    • She was incredibly receptive and will work with the local F/S Ambassadors to look for ways to implement F/S within the school.
    • She also wants to translate some of the children’s Fresh Start booklets into Arabic.
  3. An influential local church pastor and his wife, received an in-depth overview of the F/S process.
    • The feedback was very positive and the Ambassadors will follow up to help facilitate how they may personally benefit from F/S.
  4. Over 120+ Arab (7th/8th grade) students, teachers, and chapel leader participated in the “Parable of the Unforgiving Servant” (Matt 18:21-35) in chapel. The students were very engaged and loved participating in the skit.
    • The feedback was very positive from the teachers, students and the chapel leader.
  5. Strategized with the General Director of the School on how F/S might be used:
    • Within the school, local church and Evangelical Arab community.
    • The Ambassadors said after we left, he was already coming up with more ideas on how to use F/S in the near future.
  6. There were many other encouraging developments, but we can best summarize our trip by saying, “THERE IS ALWAYS MORE WITH THE LORD”.
    • Our Ambassadors have indicated they would like us to come back in the fall for more training, and to expand the reach of F/S, in the school, church, and the Evangelical Arab Community.
      The Mission Was Made Possible
    • Because of all the prayer warriors and financial supporters, who were instrumental in helping us to fulfill God’s plan, and expand the impact of Fresh Start in the Holy Land.
