As some of you know, we just got back from a trip to the Holy Land (Israel).  It was simply Off The Charts.  A few quotes from the people who went with us are below.

If Jesus hasn’t returned, and if the region is safe, I hope to take a group again next January.  If you have any interest, you might start saving now.  The trip costs a little less than $4000 per person, but includes your flights, ground transportation, hotels (4-5 star), and all meals in Israel for 8 days.  It is the trip of a lifetime!

Jeannine Powers Going to Israel added texture and color and depth to the Bible. It took things from 2D to 3D. It reminded me how miraculous our God really is.

Dan Hill It strengthened my faith. I believe in Jesus and the Bible but now it comes alive when I read it. I’ve stood at and seen many of the places in the Bible that before were just my imagination. Jesus is real and the Bible is a historical document, not just a bunch of stories.

Rick Cooper Even after only a couple of days when reading the Bible it transformed my study.  The Word came more alive than ever as I could see myself in the location where things took place. The one big take away would be a change from reading in 2 D to 3 D.

Jacque Cooper “I came away with the reality of – ‘this is where the gospels took place’ and it has become even more alive now as I read the gospels ”

Brent Hurd I think my one big thing would have to be how it made the scriptures come to life after seeing all the different places.   As another put it- the scripture now became 3D a brand new level.  So glad I went, makes our testimony even stronger knowing without a doubt those things do exist our Savior lives –  The tomb was and still is EMPTY today!
