Walking in the footsteps of Jesus since 2001


 Traveling to the Holy Land is a journey. Every day was my new favorite as I discovered Israel, the Jewish people, and visited Bible sites! 

My most treasured memories are the ones brought to life by the onsite Bible teachings.  It was beyond comprehension to travel the path of Peter from Joppa to Caesarea. Walking through the Valley of Elah and remembering the faith of young David facing a giant was faith building.

Praying in Gethsemane and remembering the example of Jesus suffering for me was deeply stirring. 

The Holy Spirit imprinted these scriptural truths and the Israel insights on my heart giving me a new perspective when I read the Bible.
