Journey of Joy in the Holy Land
November 1-10, 2023 – ISRAEL
& optional JORDAN, Nov 10-13
with Dr. Paul & Pastor Bronwyn Spilsbury
Travel through the land of Scripture and REJOICE at God’s blessing. Once we wept by streams in Babylon, now we sing as we enter His gates with thanksgiving!
Experience beauty on the Mount of Beatitudes as we read the Sermon on the Mount where Jesus taught it. Find stillness on the Sea of Galilee as we sail out and remember Jesus and Peter walking on water! Be baptized or reaffirm your baptism in the Jordan River, where John baptized Jesus and the Dove descended. Will a dove descend for you?
See Mount Carmel where Elijah prayed and fire fell. Enjoy the leafy nature reserve at Tel Dan, and the Jordan River headsprings. See the Temple of Pan and the “Gates of Hell,” where Jesus asked, “Who do you say I am?” at Caesarea Philippi. Galilee has wonders beyond compare. Be healed, where Jesus performed mighty miracles at Capernaum.
Then sit with Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane, and lift your deepest prayer at the Wailing Wall. Walk the streets of Jerusalem, where He carried the cross. Celebrate the Resurrection with joy!
This will be the journey of a lifetime. An experience of growth. An encounter with God. For God loves the world and says, Follow Me!
This journey features a small group with boutique hotels for a deluxe retreat. All welcome – the pace is reasonable, everything is provided, including headsets so we all hear the guide and teachers. Enjoy rich teaching with Bibles open, building community and stories of a lifetime through fun and fellowship.
There is an optional extension to Jordan that includes: Mt Nebo (where Moses saw the Promised Land from afar), Wadi Rum (ride open trucks into the desert with a stop at a Bedouin tent for tea), Petra (heritage site of sacred tombs and royal trade route where perhaps Abraham & Paul walked.) Message us for details.
Come and See! Be amazed!
