"As one who experienced the tour to Israel, I can say what an incredible experience it was for me. Each day the thrill of being there and seeing, feeling, and touching so much even gets stronger. We have organized our slides and while doing so have increased our knowledge and wonder of the land of Israel and her people... As you had said, reading the Bible now is so exciting, as those places and our Lord are so much more real... I am so hungry for more and more about the Lord... I thank you for all you did to make this tour possible."
