A very intense and stimulating day! The Evangelical Leaders met with many different Israeli government officials and representatives.
We started the day with a presentation by Brigadier Yossi Kupperwasser, the Deputy Director General of the Israeli Ministry of Strategic Affairs.
We then met with Minister Yuli Edelstein, minister of Diplomacy and Diaspora Affairs. They both provided us with insights into life today in Israel.
We then visited with Nir Barkat, Mayor of Jerusalem at the Jerusalem city hall. He spoke of his desire to help increase tourism in Jerusalem and ensure the city as a place of freedom of religion for all religions. We then had a private meeting with President of Israel Shimon Peres.
Dinner was held at the new Hertzl Restaurant in the fabulous Mamilla mall in Jerusalem. Chris Mitchells, head of Christian Broadcasting Network in Israel and Pastor Wayne Hillsden, Pastor of King of Kings Church joined us for dinner.
