Waking Up to War

I actually felt physically sick today when I got up and watched the news. To wake up in a region at war, to see the mounting death toll of both soldiers and civilians, and to realize how close it is to you.


To know that right this moment people are being robbed of their destinies.


To realize there's no definite black and white in this world. That people get caught in the crossfire at no fault of their own.


To feel this horrible, crushing sadness engulf your spirit.


To ask yourself questions you never had to ask yourself before because life was always less complicated on the other side of the world.


I feel like I 'so happen' to be in Israel at such a time as this for a reason. God knows why I'm here. I'm learning and I'm being challenged to think beyond what I think I know. I know this is why I wanted to  travel in this region in the first place.


Please keep the Israeli and Palestinian people in your thoughts and prayers!

The Difference

Wayfarers walk by faith and dream with eyes wide open. Living simply, they go places, break barriers, embrace people, and build bridges. They're cool if things go wrong; it's the journey that counts. They like being on their own, but love the company of like-minded people anytime! Wayfarers love to hang with the locals, make music in unusual places, and share stories. They're creative about ways to touch the world both on the home turf and on the road. Wayfarers are on the life-long odyssey of discovery with hearts anchored in Faith, Hope and Love.

About the Author

Hello, my name is Janielle, a 23 year-old muso based in Melbourne. Join me on my unpredictably audacious quest to embrace people of peace in tough places, use music to inspire creative education, spark spiritual conversations that challenge the status quo, and collaborate with like-minded young people to catalyze passion for Jesus' mission of reconciliation through acts of justice, truth and compassion among the young & free. Being a nomad at heart, I find ‘home’ when I stay with people on the ground, encounter the culture & discover what life's like for others. One Life | One Love | One Legacy.
