Baby Geese!

Hello All!

We have new baby geese in the garden (and a baby goat!) and another mama goose expecting soon. I was able to get close to them yesterday and get some adorable footage of these little cuties. You can hear the parents hissing at me towards the end of the video, warning me to stay put and not touch their little adventurous ones, who were getting a little too close to me for their comfort! Please enjoy these photos and video, and have a blessed Shabbat and weekend!




Breath of God in the Garden…

The breath of God is blowing in the Garden!

If you were unable to join us on site or by web last night for prayer, be sure and check out the replay on our website! It was an incredible time of prophetic worship and decrees! One of the things the Lord brought forth were prophetic words about the breath of God, and new breath being released to blow into and through us. This very word has been illustrated by the abundance of strong winds here over the last few days, and I’ve put together a video of this wind blowing through the Garden. Watch for the moments where the wind blows the clouds over and sunlight floods the entire Garden – it’s such an incredible illustration of His Word! The Hawaiian prayer at the beginning of the video is from this past Sunday morning when Christine Patu made declarations about the breath of God and released it in this place. The next three days were some of the windiest days we’ve had in awhile! Thank God for His mighty winds that are releasing new breath into our lungs!

Please enjoy the video, as well as many pictures I’ve included from the Garden this week. The music from the video is James Vincent singing “Sing Hallelujah” from our Judah Goes First album, available on iTunes or the webstore!



Spring is here!

Shabbat Shalom and Happy Spring!

The gardens are alive and blooming! We’ve had some rain here and are praying for more, and the garden has come alive. It is absolutely beautiful and for all of you in the region I encourage you to come and visit! But just in case you can’t, I have some pictures and a video for you to enjoy (you may notice my particular obsession with the roses!). Thank God for new life, and have a blessed and peaceful weekend!



The Month of Nissan…

Shabbat Shalom, All!

This is our first fruits weekend for the month of Nissan which is linked with the tribe of Judah. I’ve put together a video of footage from all seasons from Judah in the garden. The month of Nissan/Judah is the beginning of Spring, and just as Judah goes first, you can see the first fruits of the new growth sprouting up in the garden! God’s design is just incredible – I love seeing how He linked the first month of the Hebrew calendar with the first signs of new life in creation. It is the month where the hope we have carried through the winter season to “spring up” in such a way that we can see the beginnings of the promise we have hoped and warred for! It is the month to praise and see the fruits of your labor coming forth!

Please enjoy this video and let it stir up a new song of praise and thanksgiving as you begin to see the work that He has been doing under the surface burst forth in a new way.

Be sure and tune in this Sunday for our First Fruits celebration service and hear Robert Heidler teach on the month of Nissan!

The garden is awakening!

Hello All!

The Garden is beginning to awaken as we move into spring, with beautiful new growth and the sounds of life as you walk through it. It is absolutely invigorating to walk through, and you can really see what God is doing in us, illustrated through the shifting season in the Garden. I was like a little kid again, running around taking pictures and video of everything I saw. It brings me such joy and hope to see such a picture of God’s perfect design, knowing that if He put so much thought, love, and beauty into nature, how much more does He put into us? It’s breathtaking.

Please enjoy this 10 minute walk through the garden, and the pictures as well!

Abundant blessings,


More signs of spring… the almond tree is blooming!

Happy Monday All!

As we know, the almond tree blossom is the first sign of spring in Israel, and here are some pictures of the almond tree’s first blossoms, as well as a few more of the new life sprouting up. I’m so looking forward to the spring rains in March and the beautiful fragrance that will arise!



Faith for the new…

Hello All!

The first signs of new life are popping up all over the garden. Part of faith is knowing that no matter what season you are in, no matter what circumstances you are facing, that God remains unchanged, today, yesterday, and forever. The natural seasons and cycles of life on earth are a great illustration of that. For example, even in winter when everything looks dead and lifeless, we can rest assured knowing that spring will bring new, vibrant life. We expect it, because it has always been that way, and will always be that way. The same is true of God, and we can always expect good and wonderful things from Him, because He is God.

Praise Him for the new seasons, and the new life they bring!
