“Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another’s feet. I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you. I tell you the truth, no servant is greater than his master…” John 13:14-16
Jesus washed the feet of his disciples (including Judas) the night before he died for us. We, as his disciples, are called to serve one another.
CMJ Israel offers a wonderful way to serve: BE A VOLUNTEER at one of CMJ’s Guest Houses in the Land! Here is the link directly to the CMJ Israel website with all the information you will need.
There are presently several volunteers serving in CMJ’s Guest Houses in Israel. Here is a delightful couple I’d like to introduce you to. I met Neva and Daniel Handley while I was in Israel during November 2013 who were faithfully taking care of all the folks the Lord brought through Christ Church doing both kitchen and Guest House labors.
That’s Dan standing next to the Hanukkah candles in the Christ Church Guest House reception area. In the meantime, Neva was busy setting up for a real American Thanksgiving feast in the Guest House dining room that evening. (It was the first time in over a century that the beginning of Hanukkah fell on the same night as Thanksgiving!)
Dan and Neva Handley
Dan and Neva live in Winston Salem, NC when they are not in Israel. Dan is originally from Pittsburgh, PA (near the place that the CMJ USA office is situation in Ambridge, PA). Neva was born in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. They met when they both attend the Jerusalem University College 34 years ago. The University is just next door to Christ Church on Mt. Zion. Neva has a real servant heart and served as the principal organist at the Wake Forest Baptist Hospital/ Davis Memorial Chapel for over 16 years. She also worked in the Chaplain’s department of the hospital. Dan was a missionary pilot in several places in Central and South America and has also worked for USPS the last seven years. They have four children.
Dan told me, “I have always had a love for Israel and feel that serving as a volunteer at CMJ Israel in Jerusalem is like coming home.”
