Our Journey To Israel

SPIRIT listeners join us on tour of the Holy Land

Hey friends,

Our SPIRIT 105.3 travel adventure to Israel goes into our personal history books!

Over 13 days our group of 34 travelers absorbed the culture and history of the Holy Land as we journeyed to places including Tel Aviv, Caesarea, Nazareth, Megiddo, Sea of Galilee, Dead Sea, Bethlehem, Capernaum, and an extended time in Jerusalem.

For me it was a privilege to read aloud from scripture as we stood in the region where Jesus walked on water, changed water into wine, and David took down Goliath.  Our guide Yosi helped give us historical context of the struggles and kingdoms that came and went in the region, as we saw the archaeological remains that date back thousands of years at some sites.

Many of our travelers took the option for a baptismal rededication along the Jordan River.

Even though the images of violence in the Middle East often dominate our media, we had a strong sense of security throughout our trip.

I think if you talk to any of our group members you just might conclude it’s something that is well worth doing in your lifetime.  We really enjoyed getting to make some new friends during our trek. I hope we have the opportunity to offer such a trip in the future for SPIRIT listeners.

Yours truly ~ Larry Lomax
