Marilyn and Sarah

Israel Tour 2007

Wonderful International Ministry in Israel!

Marilyn, her team, and 100 travelers journeyed to Jerusalem for the 2007 International Women’s Mentoring Exchange!

If we could use one word to describe this trip…we’d have to say “unprecedented.”

Marilyn welcomed 100 American women participating in the first-ever exchange of its kind. Excited to see not only the beautiful sites and culture of Israel, the group would also get to experience daily interaction with the Jewish Community—including a visit to a Jewish School, teaching from local Rabbis, personal stories from the women of Israel, and onsite teaching from Marilyn.

A Memorable, Powerful Time Of Prayer For Our Friends & Partners.
At breakfast this morning, Marilyn taught the ladies a message on the Feasts of the Old Testament…showing them Jesus revealed in each one. Following breakfast, everyone gathered to lay hands on the special requests sent by our Friends and Partners to be prayed over in the Holy Land.

Marilyn Returns To Israel
Marilyn reminisced with the group about her recent trip to Israel following the war in 2006 and how the idea for the Mentoring Exchange came as a result. She shared how God moved her heart as she witnessed firsthand the persistent spirit of the Israeli people—and the determination of these women to keep Jewish customs and serve God despite horrific circumstances.

Exploring A Yeshiva—From The Inside—A Site Rarely Seen By Foreigners!
These Jewish schools rarely open their doors to those outside the faith, let alone outside the country. What an opportunity when Marilyn and her team were invited for a personal tour—including lunch!—at a local Jewish Yeshiva.

God’s Favor Extended To Marilyn
This unique event came about largely because of a personal invitation received from local Rabbis.
The impact of her earlier visit, and the support offered, opened wide the door for the travelers.

Israel International Ministry Update – Day 2
Marilyn welcomed 100 American women participating in the first-ever exchange of its kind. Excited to see not only the beautiful sites and culture of Israel, the group would also get to experience daily interaction with the Jewish Community—including a visit to a Jewish School, teaching from local Rabbis, personal stories from the women of Israel, and onsite teaching from Marilyn.

Two Guest speakers: Annie Hier and Adena Portowitzher

Each woman present was deeply touched by Annie Hier’s moving testimony of her father’s survival in the Holocaust and its impact on her life growing up in Israel. Adena shared how Jewish women embrace the entirety of the Jewish faith and tradition.

Marilyn Teaches At The Southern Steps
Today, Marilyn taught the group at the Southern Steps leading to the entrance of the Temple Mount. This is where Jesus passionately turned over the money changers tables and boldly proclaimed, “My house shall be called a house of prayer…”

Moved With Compassion At The Holocaust Museum
Considered holy and sacred ground, where the souls of over six million Jews are remembered. The Holocaust History features the Hall of Names—a repository for the Pages of Testimony of millions of Holocaust victims.

What a privilege to visit Jerusalem—to experience God’s heart for His people!

As God leads, please join us in prayer for Jerusalem. “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.” (Psalms 122:6).

Israel International Ministry Update – Day 3
This gathering of women in the heart of the Holy Land is an event like no other. The travelers are ecstatic over the faith-teachings from Marilyn, thrilling tours of Bible sites, and personal interactions with the Jewish community,

What better place to pray for Jerusalem…and the nation of Israel…than the Western Wall.

The group spent time at the historic Wailing Wall. A memorable, moving time was had by all—as they interceded for Jerusalem and the people of the Middle East.

Amid Violence And Unrest: Jesus Is Lord
Shocked by the reminders of the recent war, respect and affection for the Israeli women and what they have endured is growing every day. The Women’s Mentoring Exchange is forging new friendships and instilling fresh love for the nation of Israel in every woman here.

He Is Not Here!
The serene setting of the Garden Tomb was an idyllic setting for the group to share Communion.

The beauty of the moment—combined with a powerful teaching from Marilyn—ushered in God’s presence in a special way.

Marilyn Hickey Ministries THANKS YOU for praying and supporting this ministry so we can go to unreached places like Egypt and continue to “cover the earth with the Word.”
