Without a doubt, the best reason to donate an important internal organ is to save a loved one's life. But if you've never visited Israel and after trying every other means to raise the funds, you're still coming up short, then it's well worth it to donate a kidney to get over there. I heard once you can get up to $50,000 for donating one, so that should be more than enough to cover a trip for you and perhaps a small youth group.
Grossness aside, if you haven't been to Israel, you're missing out on one of life's top three experiences. The other two are coming to your first onething conference (a.k.a. feeling God's tremendous love for you for the first time) and getting married (a.k.a. the height of human love). Since two of these top three life experiences happened for me in 2012, I guess 2013 will be a little boring in comparison, unless God really has something up His sleeve, perhaps in the major signs and wonders category.

Lisa grew up in Elverson, PA and moved to IHOP in August 1998. Her desire is to be a singing theologian who sings songs that open deep places in people's hearts to Jesus, brings deliverance from lies (Ps. 119:130), and releases judgment on the kingdom of darkness (Ps. 149).
For me, 2012 was about ABIDING.
In numerous ways, my heart felt stretched like a rubber-band that was about to… well, snap, or cease to be a functional rubber-band. Not from trauma or tragedy. Just pressure—bad pressure like perfectionism, and good pressure like purification.
At one point the bad pressure was so bad that I dreaded each day. Who’s excited to live when you feel like a failure? Not me. One day after weeks of this depression, God tenderly reminded me that I had slipped into the Ephesian pitfall: I had lost my First Love.

I was born in the Buffalo New York area where I was raised as a pastor’s kid. I had a very musical family and parents that believed in prayer! I know for sure that their countless prayers for me are the primary reason why I have stayed close to the Lord through the years.
