  Celebrating 20 Years of Excellence 

Renew your Faith in the Holy Land

With Pastors Tim Shrader & Greg Decker

March 5 - 14, 2007

Personal Invitation

Dear friends and fellow pilgrims,

Picture this in your mind – you’re reading your Bible about a place you’ve been to in the land of the Bible, Israel.  All of a sudden your memory takes over and you can see that place, smell the unique aroma there, and hear the sounds. The Bible comes alive to you.  That is what we experience every time we read the Bible now that we have been to the land of Israel.  We want you to have that experience with us.

This is our personal invitation to you to join us on a fabulous tour of Israel, March 5-14, 2007.  Join us as we walk in the footsteps of Jesus. We will stand where Elijah stood when God sent fire from heaven.  We will tour the region of the Galilee where much of Jesus’ ministry took place.  We will stay in a kibbutz, a modern phenomenon of Israel of today. We’ll hold a baptism service in the Jordan River. We will tour the region of the Dead Sea, and see for ourselves what Abraham saw.  We will then go to Jerusalem, the City of God.  It’s amazing! All throughout the trip we will pause for times of worship, prayer, sharing, and fellowship. All of the accommodations and food are superb, and the tour company and tour guide are the finest in the world. So join us, won’t you?  Please read the accompanying tour information and then send in your registration and deposit. Believe us, this is an experience you will not regret and you will never forget!
