In AD 73, a group of Jewish rebels looked down from the mountain top fortress of Masada on an advancing Roman army.  Facing certain defeat, the Jewish people set fire to all the buildings except the storehouses containing food, which were left intact to sho the Romans that the defenders had not been subdued for want of necessaries.
     As God would have it, during the evacuation of Masada in the mid-1960's, date palm seeds were found.  These seeds were radiocarbon dated and found to be 2000 years old.  The seeds were held in storage at BAr-Ilan University for 40 years, at which time a scientist planted two of the seeds.  The seeds were given fertilizer, warmth, water, and light....and the seeds began to grow.  The seeds grew a Judean date palm (known to the Hebrews as The Tree of Life), a tree that had been extinct for 1800 years.
     God has put a desire into all of His people, a desire to fulfill the purpose that he has for our lives.  No matter how long this desire is dormant, it is still there waiting for the opportunity to be in the right environment so that it can grow.  We invite you to such an environment....come grow with us.
