    If there’s something I’m sure of, it is that the Magdala Volunteer Program has changed the life of everyone who has lived it. This experience truly marked my life in a dramatic way and I’m sure that God brought me here for two precise purposes: to grow in intimacy with Him and to meet my […]

    “What a blessing for you to be in Holy Land during Lent!” Many people told me after I gave them a tour. I only nodded as I didn’t know what to reply. I didn’t feel it was Lent and I didn’t manage to give up anything for the Lord as I would normally have done […]
