An audio message from Linda Hillman:
First, let me introduce myself. I am Linda Hillman, a woman of Faith, Senior Pastor, and Author. I was six years old when I asked Christ into my heart and at 14 I acknowledged the call to ministry in my life. As a Christian woman who believes Jeremiah 29:11. I embraced the gifts that were placed in me to be the best Minister of the Gospel God designed me to be.
In 2017, after several years of training and preparation, I founded Nu Lyfe Ministries in San Franciso, Ca. I also continued the Women's Ministries ( WHOLE Ministries and Women of Worth Retreats) that God gave me in a prophetic dream. It was also prophesied that I would go to different nations and carry the Word of the Lord.
Now, I have an opportunity to go to the Holy land and follow the steps of Jesus and see the biblical landmarks I have read about in the noble for over 30 years. I have preached about the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ, I have administered communion, and taught about the tabernacle. I have taught about Hebrew culture and prayed for the Jews.
Recently (2018) I had an opportunity to research my DNA and found that I may be connected with the 12 tribes of Israel which made the WORD of God come even more alive to me. This opportunity to go to the Holy land and walk in Christ's footsteps is a pilgrimage I desire to embark upon. It is my hope to get a new and deeper perspective of what I believe and connect ever more to Christ. I want his word to become clearer.
When I found out about this opportunity, I started to research what it would take to make this journey. With the new COVID restrictions and other travel fees involved, I need an additional $5000 to ensure that all my expenses are covered. So I am hoping that I can raise the funds with your help.
What is needed to travel to Isreal: Cost
- COVID-19 PCR Test upon arrival/Departure in Israel (x2) $298.00 (USD)
- Serological COVID Test upon arrival in Israel $279.00 (USD)
- Converter plug for laptop $29.95
- Converter for Phone/tablet $41.99
- Meals for 8 days ($60 dollars per day) $480.00
- Checked Bags for Air Flights ($45 per bag) $180.00
- Luggage Set $200.00
- International sim card for Cell Phone $39.95
- Hotel and Tour Package (incl travel insurance) $4371.00
- Incidentals that may arise unexpectedly (tips/fees/etc..) $1500.00
Most of the Tour Package has been paid already but the additional cost and fees are what is needed to ensure that I can safely travel from SFO to Tel Aviv and back. I am traveling with a group however since I am traveling as a single there are costs that I will have to pay because I have a single rate instead of a double rate.
So why am I doing this?
Besides the statement that I get to follow the steps of Christ and have a spiritual and personal growth journey. As a Pastor, I would like to have a better understanding and truly experience the Land of the Bible. It is my hope to be connected with the revelation and experience that can only come from being in this historical Christian landmark. It is also my desire to build a relationship with Christians in this country so that I can continue to support their efforts to further the Gospel in the state of Israel.
I have heard so much about this land and I have heard how it is life-changing and emerging yourself in this rich land will cause you to see differently.
For those that help me meet my goal and support me in prayer and funding, I will write on my blog starting November 1, 2021, to share all my thoughts, experiences, and revelations as I take this journey. You will see videos and pictures of my travel. My trip is scheduled for November 1 - 10, 2021. I personally thank each of you for taking the time to read my story and hopefully you will follow my journey.
The original trip was scheduled for November 2020 but then COVID Pandemic happened and I lost my steady income. I was afraid that I would not be able to go when I heard that the trip was postponed tentatively to this year. However, I was able to make payment arrangements that are allowing me to go and after much prayer and struggle. I decided to make this page. It's scary for me because I don't have a huge following of family and friends. I have to depend on the ability to allow God to bring the right ones to this page to assist me. I believe God can do it.
Thanks again, I know my timeframe to raise the funds is pretty close but I believe God will work a miracle as only He can.
