ISRAEL

Lukas Wallace,
Zealous 8:2 International Manager

If you would have asked me a few years ago, I never would have thought that I would be leading an international young-adult ministry based in Jerusalem. But God is full of surprises, and I’m being challenged and changed in a huge way every day!

I’ve served in various ministries since 2009, but it wasn’t until January 2012 that I first stepped foot in Israel. Since then, I’ve known that my calling is entwined with Israel. In 2015 I became part of the first Zealous Israel Project, and as of September 2017, I’ve been serving Zealous as the International Manager.

Being part of the Bridges for Peace family, and having the honor of serving Zealous means more to me than I can say!

Janice Diez,
Zealous8:2 USA Coordinator

I’m originally from Pensacola, FL and have a degree in International Relations. I traveled on the Zealous tour in 2012 and volunteered at the BFP Food Bank in Jerusalem, where I fell in love with the Lord’s heart for the nation of Israel. Later, I met her husband, Diego, who is originally from Argentina, where we served the local church with youth in Buenos Aires for three years. Diego has a degree in Physical Education and we both have a passion for worshiping the Lord through music. Now, we serve the local church in Orlando, Florida as youth pastors. We are passionate about expanding the Lord’s kingdom and specifically working with the next generation to grow deeper relationships with Jesus Christ
