It's only the Second day in Israel and I'm already swept off my feet from its magnificence. As I embarked on my epic adventure down the Mountain of Zevitan, I was captured by the beauty of the cliff's flourishing nature. Hiking down the mountain I felt like I was one with Israel, truly being a part of something bigger than myself. My path towards the bottom of the cliff was difficult, but at the same time very meaningful. Correlating with the history of events leading to today's Israel, I had a rough start to a very meaningful journey.
Although it was hard to get to the very bottom and witness the wonders this hike had to offer, it very much paralleled inevitable adversity that greatness must always encounter. From stepping over stones the size of my body and sliding through cracks that the width of my being can just barely withstand, this obstacle not only tested my body physically but very much spiritually. To finally make it down the hike and witness the springs and waterfall first hand was an experience I'll never forget.
This one meaningful trip out of many more to come has taught me that any feat you conquer there is always a blessing waiting from beyond. I hope that future Birthrighters go through the same obstacles I went through , yet embrace the same memorable experiences I have gained thus far.
