It was fascinating to meet people who have followed Maoz and my family “since I was this tall” and encouraging to hear them say things like, “We met Ari and Shira 30 years ago and have supported them ever since. When we heard Maoz was transitioning to new leadership, we weren’t sure the ‘new Maoz’ would be capable of carrying the load, but after this conference we are completely confident in the next generation of Maoz!”
And truly, I have absolutely LOVED travelling in the Land! Israel has become my “second” home. Seeing the Land, loving the people, and seeing the ministry flourish has been one of the most thrilling parts of my time with Maoz. What a privilege!
This is a calling given to the Levites of old and still remains on Israel today – to lead people in worship into the presence of God. It’s a calling that was never intended to stay in Israel, only to spread from Israel. And we want it shared with the world!
