holy land tour
 

09 Days Holy Land Travel Tour to Israel  Join us on a ten day spiritual journey focusing on the Life and times of Jesus, “walking where Jesus walked.”  Imagine yourself in the Galilee, and in Capernaum –referred as Jesus “own town” (Matthew 9:1), where Jesus began his ministry (Mark 1:21 John 6:59), and recruited his first disciple (John 21:15-17). Stand on the Mt. of Beatitudes (Matthew 5, Matthew 6, Matthew 7, Matthew 8) and make believe you are listening to the Lord preach the Sermon on the Mount. Submerge yourself in the Jordan River, where Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist (John 1:29-33). Continue on to the Golden City of Jerusalem, and walk the Stations of the Cross on the Via Dolorosa, where you can take time to reflect the Lords sacrifice for all of us, and what an incredible moment it will be when you stand on the Mt. of Olives in Jerusalem, where Jesus ascended in to heaven (acts 1). We invite you not just on another trip, but a spiritual journey you will never forget.
