Israel Breaks IncomIng Tourism Records for Mid-2018

by Steve Ray on July 13, 2018

JUST REPORTED BY THE STATE OF ISRAEL:
“In June alone, 310,200 tourists entered Israel – an increase of about 2% compared with June of last year.
(PICTURE: Our full bus of pilgrims in June 2018. One of 8 trips this year to the Holy Land.)
“For the first time, Israel crossed the threshold of 2 million tourist arrivals by the end of June… [I]n the first half of the year, there was an increase of 19% in overall tourist entries compared to the same period last year.“

STEVE RAY HERE:  Considering that the population of Israel is around 8 million people that means that in the first half of this year 1/4 of the number of the population of Israel toured Israel. Or by the end of the year, if the numbers remain consistent, 4 million people will visit Israel which is half of their total population.

I am here to tell you that — having visited Israel over 160+ times and taking thousands of people — it a safe and marvelous and spiritual and biblical and beautiful.

God bless Israel and the pilgrims who visit! It is our land and we should not be kept away. Steve and Janet are a big part of the success. Can’t wait to go again.

I hope all the tourists visiting Israel get to meet some Palestinians and learn about their lives.

STEVE RAY HERE: With our Groups there’s a lot of contact with Palestinians especially the Christians. My guide is a Roman Catholic Palestinian, everybody meets a very nice family and we take up a collection to support them so they can stay in Jerusalem. We also spend a lot of time with the local Palestinian Christians in Bethlehem and we support the Christian Palestinians everywhere we go.
