LAND ONLY | GUARANTEED DEPARTURE TOUR
Roundtrip Airline Flight Separate From Package*
Join us on a trip to the Holy Land. It promises to be both spiritually enriching and life-changing. As you prepare for the journey, don’t forget to be prepared to be inspired, to be awed, to say over and over, “This is the exact place where Abraham lived… where the Temple stood… where Jesus was born…” Seeing the places you’ve learned about only in books, walking along the same path that Jesus walked, or touching the walls of an ancient monastery.
You will gain a perspective of the teachings of Jesus that you can only get by standing where he stood as He taught.
