September 6, 2016

By Orly Wolstein.. Exchanging the stifling heat of the forty degrees centigrade in the Israeli desert for the Australian winter by going from one part on the globe to the other for the speaking tour with Christians for Israel.

The director of the First Home in the Homeland, Elena Kovarsky, guided me through all the preparations; we collected video materials, PowerPoint slides and documentation about our First Home in the Homeland program to share with our Australian Christian and Jewish friends. We experienced in this tour so much acceptance and good will and hospitality! But let me tell the story step by step.
