Tish Emrich - AM

I came to know the Lord in the mid 70’s during the Jesus movement. At that time, I read “The Late Great Planet Earth” by Hal Lindsey which explained biblical prophesy, which I very quickly loved and embraced. Having tried to open so many other doors and having wandered down so many other paths to find some meaning for my life, I was, and still am, eternally grateful that my search was finally over because I discovered that He, Jesus Christ, is the way the truth and the life. I have traveled worldwide to visit many wonderful places and have also had the opportunity to live in Saudi Arabia, Holland and Japan. Additionally, I spent a semester in Israel at the Calvary Bible College in Jerusalem. I have been blessed with the privilege to travel to Israel four times, and discovered that the Western Wall is my favorite place to be in this world. I have one lovely daughter and 2 adorable granddaughters. I love to ride my bike around Del Sur and also on Coronado where I lived for decades.
