Before and After

On this chilly, rainy day, I decided to review my photographs from the past year in the Israel Prayer Garden.  It’s hard to believe that the garden we now enjoy was an overgrown, neglected piece of earth just ten months ago.  I have done my best to select some before and after photos of the garden for you to enjoy.  Of course, you can always go back to the beginning of this blog if you want to review what God accomplished in the garden in such a short amount of time.  And I’ll enjoy listening to the rain on my roof!

    Love the before and after. I’m going to send a link of this to a friend who worked for Boeing in this building almost 20 years ago.
    Thanks Pam and your crew for all you have done!

    AWESOME!! Just Awesome to see what something was in the past…and what God intended for it to become. And being able to walk through and enjoy it has been a wonderful blessing. Every time I walk through I am greeted with the Presence of God, that is the true intent, is it not? The garden is an awesome metaphor for our lives. Thank you for all your hard work, time and love!
    ps. the pictures are good too!!!

    What an amazing picture of transformation and VISION! The garden is beautiful beyond description. I’m believing God will make a way for me to see it one day.

    Looking at the pictures of the before and after garden brings to mind my first trip to Israel. I remember seeing the green line of Israel compared to the brown line of the Palestinian border.
    I was at the dedication and was so impressed then and now I am in awe of what you have accomplished.

    Thank you so much for all your hard work and the team that worked on the garden.
