Walk In Jesus Footsteps!
Updated: a day ago
What a epic journey to the Holy Land! This was my second journey was more exciting than ever!
We flew from Atlanta to Newark for a three-night pre-stay in New York/New Jersey! We stayed on the Jersey side of the Hudson River. This was a FAM trip, travel agent training. My goal was to advance my first-hand experience in the Holy Land. This was my second journey. The supplier definitely proved to be "superior"!
Tel Aviv. We arrived and were met at the airport by our tour guide, Abraham. Yes, Abraham! We were transferred to our hotel for dinner and overnight stay.
The Sea of Galilee. After breakfast a short walk to the dock behind our hotel and sailed the Sea of Galilee. My roommate was appointed as a pastor two months before our departure, was one of the the worship leaders.
Baptism In the Jordan River. Many of our group members were baptized in the Jordan River.
Cana, Nazareth & Jacob's Webb. We visited Cana, the site of Jesus’ first miracle where He turned the water into wine and on to Nazareth, Jesus’ boyhood home. We stopped at Jacob's Well where Jesus encountered the woman at the well.
Jericho, Quram & Mount of Olives. In Jericho we saw the City ruins and the tradi-tional site of the Temptation of Jesus. On to Qumran, where the Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered. We posed for a group picture at the Mount of Olives, where Jesus ascended into heaven. The "Golden City" of Jerusalem in the background. We walked through the Garden of Gethsemane with the ancient olive trees.
Jerusalem & Bethlehem. We visited the cave revered as Jesus’ birthplace and the Church of the Nativity. We meditated on the events of the Last Supper and visited the traditional location of the Upper Room. [Photo is from my first Holy Land visit.]
Jerusalem the Old City. We explored ancient Jerusalem and walked in Jesus’ footsteps on the Via Dolorosa. At the Western Wall, men on the left and women on the right, all who wished prayed. The Wall is on a lower level from the Temple Mount, Rock of the Dome. We also sat on the Teaching Steps where Jesus once taught.
Masada & The Dead Sea. We ascended by cable car to Masada, Herod’s legendary mountaintop fortress. We stopped at a free standing merchant for camel rides. Later we immersed in the Dead Sea salt and mineral waters, the lowest point on earth.
Communion At the Garden Tomb. We toured the Garden Tomb, had communion, celebrated of His Resurrection. My roommate helped with the communion.
A Must Visit! If you have not visited the Holy Land, now is the time to plan. You can book a group or join a group. I personally feel that one visit is not enough and I am ready to go again! No amount of photos, videos or written accounts can substitute for the actual experience.
