Saginaw Pilgrims Arrive in the Holy Land

by Steve Ray on February 28, 2013

(If you leave comments below I’ll read them to your family and friends each day on the buses. Mention who you are writing the comments to :-)

Everything went smooth with arrivals and as we begin our first day. It couldn’t have gone better. All three airlines came in on time and the buses pulled out of the airport right on schedule.

After our ride up to Galilee we had dinner all prepared at our Kibbutz hotel right on the shores of Galilee. Now everyone is heading to bed and some are having a drink or walking down to the sea of Galilee.

This video will give you an idea of how everything went on our first day.

Thanks to Bishop Cistone for bringing his diocese and for trusting us to guide them. This is a grand celebration of the 75th anniversary of the Saginaw Diocese.

By the way, a point of interesting trivia: the Diocese of Saginaw Michigan is 7,000 square miles; all of Israel is only 8,000 square miles!
