After a time of prayer and reflection, we began following the path Jesus took on the night of His betrayal. From the Garden to the Cross.

We had an amazing and life-transforming journey!  We made new friends. Enjoyed afternoons together as our hearts were moved by the sights, sounds and story of Scripture. Our evenings were filled with the sounds of laughter and sharing about our experiences of the day.We will forever read Scripture with a new understanding and a deeper love for Christ. We all arrived home safe last night and will continue to prayerfully-reflect on the lessons we’ve learned over the past 10-days.

God willing, this will be the first of many such life shaping pilgrimages to the Land of the Bible…

As they say, “See you next year in Jerusalem…”
