That's how Liberty point guard Dymond Morgan described the Lady Flames' upcoming two-week educational/spiritual/basketball trip to Israel. The team will depart on Saturday.
The Lady Flames will spend their first two days touring different locations around Israel, including Tiberias, Capernaum, the Sea of Galilee, the Jordan River and the Dead Sea. They will then move on to Jerusalem and the surrounding area, where the team will visit the Mount of Olives, Gethsemane, Western Wall, Jewish Quarter, Via Dolorosa and the Garden Tomb, among other attractions. The trip will then conclude in Eilat, where the Friendship Games basketball tournament will be held.
“This trip is a dream opportunity for any Christian athlete,” stated head coach Carey Green. “It will feature spiritual enlightenment, a historical tour, an education of a different culture and basketball competition. I expect that lives will be impacted through this great opportunity to walk in the footsteps of Jesus.”
