2009 Holy Land Tour Update

June 14, 2008

Several months ago we announced plans for a tour to the Holy Land next year. Here’s the latest update:

  • We’re still planning to go in late October 2009.
  • We should have brochures ready later this summer.

I invite you to join us for this trip of a lifetime. You will see Bethlehem, Jerusalem, Capernaum, Caesarea, Tiberias, Nazareth, Jericho, and much more. We will sail on the Sea of Galilee where the Son of God calmed the storm, walk along the Via Dolorosa on our way to Calvary, and stand on the Hill of Megiddo—the place known as Armageddon in the Book of Revelation. We will take a boat ride on the Sea of Galilee, worship at the Garden Tomb, and walk through the walled city of Old Jerusalem.

The Holy Land is like no place on earth and a journey to Israel is like no other trip you will ever take. I hope you will join Marlene and me in October 2009 as we “come home” to Israel, land of the Bible.

Stay tuned for more updates later this summer.

2009 Holy Land Tour Update

May 13, 2008

IMG_1743 Last month I announced that Marlene and I are planning to lead a tour to the Holy Land in 2009. I promised you that as as soon as I had any more information, I would let you know. After working with our tour company, it now appears that we will be going to the Holy Land in late October-early November 2009. We’re looking at October 27-November 6 as possible dates–but don’t hold me to that just yet. The fall is an excellent time to visit Israel because the heat of the summer is past and the weather typically is very comfortable. Tour prices generally are also lower in the fall. I don’t have a price to quote yet, but I can tell you that rising fuel costs have impacted airfares dramatically. We will do everything we can to give you excellent value for a reasonable cost.The tour will include several new features:

And of course we will stand on Mt. Carmel where Elijah defeated the prophets of Baal, take a boat ride on the Sea of Galilee, visit ancient Jericho, tour the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem, and we will wrap up our tour with a communion service at the Garden Tomb.

We don’t have brochures yet–and probably won’t have them for a while yet. But I wanted to give you this update so you can plan now to go with us to the Land of the Bible in 2009.
