“Dudley and I met and married after we had both gone through divorces. We blended a family of eight children, so our life was full of excitement and difficulties.

“We had both been raised in Protestant churches and have families who serve the Lord according to their understanding of scriptural truth. We had little disagreement over our beliefs. Even though he was taught the doctrine “once-saved-always-saved” and I wasn’t, we studied the doctrine and concluded this was not the truth.

“We were both taught that miracles were not for today, that God never used supernatural gifts or events, and that there was a “great gulf” between the living saints and the dead saints.

“We were both taught that Catholics were doctrinally off base and to be pitied because they were generally not “born-again.”

“We went to several different churches and studied many other denominations, including Mormon, Jehovah’s Witness and a few splinter spin-offs of the charismatic non-denominational movement. Each time, after a great deal of study, I rejected these churches……”

We are flying to Israel today and wanted to let you know of an exciting new trip we added to our list.

There are lots of people who have visited the Holy Land and seen the regular sites in Nazareth, Cana, Jerusalem and more. BUT do you know that this biblical land is full of riches you never saw on that first trip. 

Now we are taking a small group – of less than 25 people – to go back to the Holy Land to dig deeper – to see new things that very few people see. The only site we will repeat is the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. Everything else is new and exciting.

We will have all our Masses with the local Christians. We have a Mass with the Bishop of Jerusalem and other very interesting local Masses. Meals are exceptional including one at the home of our guide Amer and his wife.

Take a look at the brochure and itinerary here and register quickly since we can only take the first 25 people who register. The dates are January 26 – February 5, 2016.

This is for those who have been to the Holy Land or who want a different experience that the normal pilgrimage. Steve and Janet make it exceptional. You will see sites that large groups cannot get into ands special sites that first time visitors just do not have time for.”
