JOURNEY TO THE LAND OF THE BIBLE

Hosted by Rob & Rhonda Bugh and Tom & JoAnn Doyle May 9—20, 2011
Dear Friends, I want you to prayerfully consider joining Rhonda and I, and Tom Doyle, author and Middle East expert, and his wife JoAnn, for a trip of a lifetime! A 12 day trip to Israel, the land of the Bible. I believe God will use this trip in your life to make the Bible come alive. I want you to see, touch, and experience the sights, sounds and smells of the land of our Savior. Our adventure will take us from the Mediterranean Coast at the ancient city of Caesarea and walk us along the paths of some of the greatest events in history. We’ll kick up the dust of ancient battlefields. We’ll touch the stones that stand as silent witnesses of God’s miraculous power. We’ll dip our feet in waters that were stirred and calmed by the voice of the Creator. We’ll walk the Via Dolorosa in Jerusalem, and we’ll pray at the Wailing Wall. The tour will provide something for everyone who wants to deepen his or her biblical knowledge and walk with Christ. Added features will also provide wonderful opportunities for fellowship, encouragement, and ministry growth, like a Jordan River baptism, and insights on prophesy and Middle East issues from Joel Rosenberg and Tom Doyle. In order to provide the maximum impact for each person, we’ve limited our group size. I look forward to building lifelong memories and friendships in Christ. Join us and be forever changed!
