Jerusalem has been and is the focal point of Biblical history and prophecy. It is mentioned by the name Jerusalem 225+ times in the Old Testament and 75+ times in the New Testament in addition to other designations. Jewish tradition, with a significant amount of supportive evidence, maintains that the environs of Jerusalem were the site of the original Garden of Eden and Adam and Eve were buried in the cave of Machpelah at Hebron.
Southwestern Assemblies of God University (SAGU)
SAGU not only has a rich spiritual heritage, but a long history of strong leaders who listened to God’s. SAGU President Emeritus Delmer Guynes was a pillar of faith in a time when SAGU needed guidance. Under Guynes’ leadership, SAGU rebounded from a period of low enrollment and financial difficulty and achieved a record enrollment of 1,672 students. Guynes also helped pay off the federal loan taken out to renovate the Farmer Administration Building.
Marcus and Janette Triplett
My journey began back in 2000 when my husband, Marcus Triplett arranged for us to take a tour to Israel. I was not excited at all to go to Israel; this was during the time of the suicide bombings and a lot of terrorist attacks. We went in November of 2000 and I fell in love with the land. I never dreamed it would have had this effect on me. The Bible came alive to me. I no longer read the scriptures as just letters on a page of a book that I believed in. Now I could actually see them taking place.
