Two months ago, to my complete shock, Sara said, “I wonder what it would be like to visit Israel again with the work God has done in my heart.”
“Do you want me to take you there?” I asked. She nodded. “Just us, or do you want to invite some others to go with us?”
“Let’s do another tour,” she said.
I never saw it coming. I had planned another trip for 2021 when COVID intervened, and we had to cancel it. So, this is Sara’s tour of Israel, and you’re invited to join us. We’ll be going February 1-11, 2024, with an optional visit to Jordan on the way in for those who would like to extend the tour and spend a day at Petra.
If you’ve never been to Israel, you have no idea what it means to—
- To look out across the Sea of Galilee and contemplate all that happened there.
- To stand on Mt. Carmel, where Elijah confronted the prophets of Baal, and where you also overlook the Jezreel Valley.
- To reflect alongside 2000-year-old olive trees in Gethsemane,
- To wander through the city where God chose to reveal himself to the world and accomplish the redemption of humanity.
Those things profoundly touched my life in the three trips I’ve taken there as it has for others who have gone with me. I felt the earth where Jesus walked. I saw first-hand the sky, hills, valleys, and waters where he lived. This was his earthly home! At key locations, I’ll be sharing the insights from that land that most shaped my journey of growing trust in Jesus to help you process your own journey of growing faith.
In addition, you have no idea the amazing people you will meet from all over the world who cherish some of the same realities about God and his love that you do. Many have come away from past trips with new, life-long friendships that take root over the ten days we will spend together at the table, on the bus, or walking together through the most significant locations in redemptive history.
We are going in February since the weather is cooler in these desert locations. We can also take a smaller group more affordably at that time and not have to battle the crowds at the sights we will visit.
We still have spots available if you want to join Sara and me for this tour. Get all the details here.

I really want to go and will this time Wayne. Perfect time of year. Mark has no desire to go so I’ll be single and would like my own room etc I’d also like to do the extension and see Petra!
It will be great to have you join us. We’re very excited about how this one is shaping up.
Whenever you’ve brought a group to Israel in the past, we couldn’t join in because of commitments and family responsibilities. But now things are different! We’re going to make it work this time and are looking forward to joining you and Sarah. As well as meeting Sarah!
That would be great. We already have quite a group shaping up.
