From years of hands-on experience, cultivating unique relationships in Israel and a love for history, Doug provides a rare perspective on the connection between the Jewish Scriptures and present day Israel. When he is not in Israel, he is speaking in churches and synagogues about the prophesied restoration of Israel.
By combining Scripture and current events in the Middle East, the Bible comes alive and listeners will recognize exactly how their Bible is being fulfilled in our lifetime in obvious and practical ways and how we can be a part of this unfolding story.
To schedule an event in 2018 to see this ground breaking photo book presentation and to hear exactly how biblical prophecy is being fulfilled in our lifetime, PM me today for more info!

This weekend I was planning on meeting up with a friend in Lebanon. As soon as I landed at the Beirut Airport, I was firmly denied access for the following reason: My recent trip to Israel. More precisely, they told me that they don’t accept someone of Arabic origin who has visited Israel in Lebanon.
The problem was therefore not the fact that I had visited Israel, but that I had visited this country whilst having Arab origins. In their eyes, that made me a traitor.
The French embassy have no idea how they knew this since my passport hadn’t even been stamped at that time.
Anyway, visiting Israel has no link with advocating for the Israeli government in the Arab-Israeli conflict, even less so in the Lebanese-Israeli conflict. I don't currently belong to any party, any organisations.
I am French. I'm neither Jew nor a Lebanese. My father is of Algerian origin, my mother is French. But Israel stops me and questions me systematically for hours because of my Algerian origins. Then Lebanon denies me access to the country because of my trip to Israel. What next? Could I go back to Israel after my attempt to enter Lebanon? Could I return to Algeria or will they react like Lebanon did? This middle east is gonna drives me schizophrenic.
I was locked up in a room for 24h and then sent back to France, at my own expense. In this room I also found myself in the company of a large Syrian family who was fleeing the war. They had asked for refuge in Lebanon so that they could join their cousins there.They were cruelly denied access.
In this photo, the mother clutches her crying daughter to her chest. She gazes out at Beirut through our room’s window, as it dawns on her that she’ll never set foot in this city and that her journey hasn’t yet come to an end.
Although this is a low-quality photo taken with my phone, to me, it conveys a lot of meaning.
After spending several hours speaking about Syria, they handed me this banknote to remember them by. I was touched by their gesture.
When I see the problems encoutered by a "rich" Syrian family in their flight from war, I'm afraid to fathom the difficulties encountered by those who can’t even afford to purchase airplane tickets.
Bye Greece! You were easy to fall in love with; I would do it all over again❤️. An older, much wiser traveler once told me "you should plan your next destination while on your current trip" Sounds smart to me!! #Turkey#Istanbul#Israel#March#2019#travel
Another image from my pilgrimage to Masada. If walls could talk.. Masada was built by Herod the Great between 37 and 31 BCE. According to Josephus, the siege of Masada by troops of the Roman Empire at the end of the First Jewish–Roman War ended in the mass suicide of 960 people, the Sicarii rebels and their families hiding there.
In 66 CE, a group of Jewish rebels, the Sicarii, overcame the Roman garrison of Masada with the aid of a ruse. After the destruction of the Second Temple in 70 CE, additional members of the Sicarii fled Jerusalem and settled on the mountaintop after slaughtering the Roman garrison.
When Roman troops entered the fortress, they discovered that its defendants had set all the buildings but the food storerooms ablaze and committed mass suicide or killed each other, 960 men, women, and children in total. Josephus wrote of two stirring speeches that the Sicari leader had made to convince his men to kill themselves. Only two women and five children were found alive. #masada#israel#deadsea
Israel is a War Criminal:
👆🏽👆🏽👆🏽👆🏽👆🏽👆🏽👆🏽👆🏽👆🏽👆🏽👆🏽 What could your family do with the $5,000 a year every squatter family in #Israel steals from you?
And yet this amount of money does not include US foreign aid to countries to play nice with Israel!
So excited to be working on this new edit. I had a blast in Israel and feel so lucky to be able to have these experiences, meet so many new people and travel the world through paddling.
