Walk Where Jesus Walked
Tour of the Holy Land
With Tim Winter
January 4 - 13, 2012
I am very excited to invite you to an unforgettable and life-changing experience in the Land of Israel! We have just returned from Israel and Jordan, from the most successful and rewarding ministry trips we have ever led. We chose to travel in the "off season" for two reasons. First, the price is considerably lower and allows for college students and families to afford the time and travel. Secondly, the access to the sites is unrestricted and allows for more sites to be visited without crowds and bus traffic. The Lord blessed the 41 member tour with a well planned itinerary and perfect weather! The testimony of our travelers leaves no doubt that they too were overjoyed with their Mission travel investment. In their own words, "This trip was far beyond my expectations", a businessman from North Carolina wrote. "My time in Israel with Pastor Tim was truly life changing" UWM college graduate, "There was so much I could hardly take it in and I will definitely take my family again", Youth Pastor and Business owner, “This trip to Israel with Eagles Nest Church was incredible, I will never read the Bible the same again!" There were many other comments worth reading and we also would offer a video on site testimonial available upon request. It brings tears to my eyes to watch what God did for those followed the command to "Come see the place where He laid, He is no longer Here but He is Risen!" Mk 16:6
Please join Colleen and me Next year in Jerusalem!
Tim Winter, Pastor, Eagles Nest Church
