A Special Invite from Dr. Alex Himaya

It is my pleasure to invite you to join me for a journey of a lifetime to the Holy Land and Jordan. In October 2022, we are going to embark on a 10-day spiritual journey to walk where Jesus walked and experience the Bible coming to life as we visit such locations as Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Jericho, and the region around the Sea of Galilee. Other highlights include visiting Petra, Masada, the land of the Exodus. It promises to be a trip that will impact your life forever.

Pastor Alex
