Hey Vintage Church Family,
I would like to introduce you to my good friend, Saliba Danho. The picture above was taken in Jericho after a great meal with my dad and Saliba. I can’t wait to be back in Israel in 2015. I will be sharing some more details about this trip on Sunday.
Saliba was born and raised in the heart of Jerusalem, right next to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. He and his family are members of the Syriac Orthodox Christian Church. His parents and other relatives still live in the Old City. On my last trip to Israel, my family had the privilege of sharing a meal at their home. It was one of the coolest experiences of my life.
Saliba is married to Agnieszka and they have twin sons and a daughter. They currently live in Poland. His wife and daughter will be with us as well!
Saliba is the Founder and Executive Director of GM Travel which is a World-Wide Travel Agency. He has served as a tour guide for Israel Pilgrimages for some of the top pastors around the world. Over the last 20 years, he has served as a tour guide in Israel alongside my dad, Dr. Don Wilton. During this time, God has used Saliba in a major way. In my first ever trip to Israel I was blown away, not only by the amount of knowledge Saliba has about the Bible and the Holy Land, but more importantly, I was inspired by his application of this knowledge into my life as a follower of Jesus.
This Sunday, I have asked for Saliba to join me in preaching from Acts 5:12-42. I am going to preach on “perseverance” and Saliba is going to give us an accurate picture of what persecution looked liked during this critical time in history.
Trust me, you DO NOT want to miss this incredible journey in the Word of God. See you guys at Rock ’n’ Bowl at 10am on Sunday!
