I invite you to join me for my “Historic Pilgrimage to the Holy Land” to see the very places
where Jesus walked, taught and lived His earthly life. This is intended to be my last visit
to the Holy Land and I hope you will join me for this extraordinary journey!
Together we will share a once in a lifeJme experience, the places you have read about in
the Bible: where He was born in Bethlehem, where He fed the five thousand in the
Galilee, and where He sJlled the storm on the Sea of Galilee and you experience your
own boat ride on these miracle waters. Come with us and see where the walls of Jericho
came tumbling down and the lowest point on the earth, the Dead Sea.
We will travel via air-condiJoned luxury buses and we will eat and pray together. On
Masada, overlooking the Dead Sea, I will perform Exodus- the work for which I wrote the
lyrics- and we will experience the essence of our Lord and Savior together.
I am certain you will return filled with enthusiasm, graJtude and a renewed faith.
“To walk in the footsteps of Jesus cannot be described. It can only be experienced.”
Please complete the enrollment form and send it in to our friends at The Quest Travel Group who have arranged this joyous
experience for us all. I look forward to meeJng you in person!
In Love for Israel,
