When I started my journey to promote Israel in all 50 States, in my mind, I figured it meant having a speaking engagement in each State I visit.
As time passed and things weren’t going exactly as I planned, I started accepting the fact that the universe had different plans for me, and that maybe the short encounters and one on one conversations with individuals I had along the way, are much more impactful than speaking to a room full of people.
In Charleston South Carolina, I couchsurfed at Amy Yvonne Hassinger. A beautiful soul that devotes her life to helping others. From voluntary work with her church, to tutoring troubled kids in school, and even teaching kids from the projects how to swim for free (she owns a swimming school).
I was fascinated with Amy’s life and when she invited me to go with her to service on Sunday, i happily accept the invitation.
It was the first time I visited a service in a church and it was a spiritual experience no doubt… As a Jew, I was happy to see the pastor reading parts from the old testament and seeing the star of David on the screens (and on people’s necklaces) time and time again.
After a wonderful few days with Amy, I continued my journey.
We haven’t spoke since, but today, I see a notification saying Amy mentioned me in a post. This post below.
I have no idea whether my encounter with Amy had anything to do with this post or not. But for me, this feels like a closure, this feels like I did what I had to do in South Carolina
