Strengthening Your Faith
Tour of the Holy Land
with Pastor Tim Shrader
March 12 – 21, 2012
I took my first trip to Israel in 1998 and I can say without hesitation that as a Christ follower, it changed my life. This will be my sixth tour there.
I love to travel; I have been in a number of wonderful places throughout the world, both on tours and mission trips, but nothing has affected me so profoundly as Israel. There is no adequate way to describe the sensation you have when you stand where Jesus stood, or feel the wind as you cross the Sea of Galilee by boat, or smell the delightful smells of Israel. Then, when you come back to the U.S.A. and open your Bible to a Scripture passage describing somewhere you have been in Israel, wow! The tour accommodations are great; the coach drivers are the best, and the tour guides are walking encyclopedias. I really hope you will go on this trip for you will never be the same again. Other lands will stay in your memory; Israel will stay in your heart.
