2015 was yet another significant milestone in the development of Magdala. We thank all of those who have faithfully prayed for and participated in this vision. Many amazing things happened at Magdala last year, but we wanted to capture some of the statistics for what was accomplished.
The new Magdala website launched in June, 2015. We received 24,638 website visits from launch though the end of the year. Magdala.org is a great way for people to connect and stay up to date on what is currently happening here at Magdala.
Also, our Magdala Facebook community has grown to over 8,795 in English and 5,914 in Spanish. There are Facebook posts almost daily as Magdala grows and develops.
Magdala encourages everyone to visit and experience this Holy Land. In 2015, 73,852 visitors came from around the world! We hope to grow that number and touch more lives in 2016. Since the site was inaugurated in May 2014, over 100,000 people have come to walk where Jesus taught.
Magdala continues to depend on prayers and donations to accomplish its mission. In 2015, 251 people gave to Magdala totaling $4,864,573 donations raised. We praise God for those generous gifts that will go toward Bringing The Vision To Life!
