The Holy Land is a place of meaning and mystery for the followers of Jesus. Thus I would like to invite you to join me and others on a journey of discovery as we travel to the Holy Land and visit places where Jesus lived and learn how he ministered to people. In addition to a guide who is knowledgeable in history and biblical studies, we will explore, the manner in which Jesus spoke into the lives of different people. But there is more, we want to hear what Jesus will say to us as our ‘Soul Guide’. This experience will be transformational. You are invited to come and join me on this special tour to Israel.
