Dear Friends,

I would like to invite you to join me on a trip to the Holy Land in March of 2024, along with Israeli tour guide Eran Salamon. Imagine walking where Jesus walked or riding in a boat across the Sea of Galilee, where Jesus calmed a storm and Peter walked on water. See the Bible come to life as you visit biblical sites such as Jerusalem, the Dead Sea, the Mount of Olives, the Garden of Gethsemane, Golgotha, and the Garden Tomb. Spending time in Israel will be a relaxing time of spiritual growth and renewal. On your trip, you will learn about biblical history, archaeology, Jewish culture, and also enjoy Israeli food. Ask anyone who has been to Israel, and they will tell you it is truly the trip of a lifetime. I know firsthand that your life will never be the same once you experience God’s Country. 

Blessings, Pastor William Wolfe
