Our family was blessed to join Pastor Don and his wife, Jan, on a trip to Israel last month. Over the course of a few short days, we came to love them. Pastor Don’s passion for Jesus shows in all he does. He makes the Bible come alive in his devotionals, and what a privilege it was to stand on holy ground as we listened to him. We are especially grateful that he welcomed our 10 year old son, gave him his firsts communion , made him feel wanted and special. Our son, like the rest of us, will carry this trip with him the rest of his life.

Jan Christianson is an unsung hero. She’s happy to work in the background and let her husband have the attention, but nothing he does would be possible without her quiet wisdom, support, and faithfulness to God. We pray that we will be able to join Pastor Don and Jan again on a future trip to the Holy Land.
