Rachel was just three at the outbreak of WWll when she left Scotland with her mother to join her father in New Zealand to start a new life. Her memories are much the same as many young people from that era, with some notable distinctions. From pastor’s wife in the back-country of New Zealand to staying in a Jewish millionaire’s house in the centre of Jerusalem, her memories span not so much the years but rather the growth of family, spiritual growth and the awakening to the truth of the Almighty’s intentions for His Jewish people. Such was the impact of this knowledge that Rachel committed herself to taking 22 tour groups to Israel to impart her discoveries to others.
Later, Rachel was to hear a Jewish author speaking about the recent book he had written, inspired by stories from his mother’s childhood growing up in Poland. Rachel was so taken with his address that she bought his book in which he inscribed “Sometimes your memories are not your own.” This was all the encouragement she needed to complete this book.
It is Rachel’s hope that the tour group experiences while in Israel will rekindle good memories for readers and inspire others to visit Israel and create their own memories.
