Dear Friends,

The most significant place on earth to a Christian is the land of Israel. This trip includes TEN full days of touring the Holy Land including Jordan. One of the most life changing experiences I have ever had was my first trip to Israel. It seems that we literally step back to the time of our Lord, traveling to the places where Jesus spent His earthly ministry. To walk the streets of old Jerusalem, sail on the Sea of Galilee or look over the Valley of Armageddon, is beyond description. The cliché, “The Bible comes alive,” is really true. We would love to invite you to come with us, to share this wonderful Holy Land for 12 unbelievable days. We will enjoy great fellowship, accommodations, food, friendly people, and above all, a wonderful time of growth and deep spiritual blessings.                                                                                                                                                                                                              Tour Host, David Disney

We will continue on to Mt Carmel where we will reflect on the happenings from 1Kings 18 as the Prophet Elijah confronts the prophets of baal. After our visit on Carmel, we will make a stop at Tel Megiddo if time permits. Then as we journey across the Jezreel Valley to the Sea of Galilee, we will stop for a magnificent view atop Mt.
