A water-blessing ceremony in the Jordan river during the Heart of Faith Pilgrimage 2013: Nettie being blessed by Fr. Stephen Porter and Rabbi Roger Ross. For some, baptism, for some, re-dedication, for others, a symbolic “mikvah”. All were moved by this experience in their own way.

In 2013, working in concert with Rabbi Roger Ross of NY and with Fr. Stephen Porter in CA, Nettie brought 17 pilgrims of different faiths on a trip to Israel that was life-changing for many aboard. The Heart of Faith Pilgrimage was an opportunity to see the Holy Land through the eyes of many faiths.
