Letter from a participant in our  Holy Land group tour:

” Thank you so much for the opportunity to experience one of my most memorable experiences ever. I’ve been to Israel before as a student but nothing compare to this one.

I’m forever grateful to walk where Jesus has walked, to have a better understanding of Jewish history, and to read my bible with so much more conviction. I can identify with every place as I read and picturize every miracle, teaching, and event as my faith is being strengthened daily. I will constantly pray for peace in Israel,as God commands us to do.

Thank you for your professionalism in which you conduct your tours .It’s worth every penny, I mean dollar/ shekel. lol. May God continue to bless you as you endeavor to make every Christian’s journey a memorable one. “

Shalom
