Christmas in Bethlehem, Sign up Now, Don’t be Afraid of the Holy Land

by Steve Ray on November 9, 2014

Written today from a pilgrim who has traveled to the Holy Land with us numerable times:

“For those committed or considering, don’t let anyone keep you away. Steve and Janet would never put you in danger, and the experience is a once in a lifetime event. I would go back for a fourth time with no fear. This land is where our religion was founded, we cannot let events keep us away. You are much safer in Jerusalem than in Detroit.”

And do we have the trips for you!

Work and school schedules a problem — no problem! We have a convenient pilgrimage planned over the Christmas break — from the day after Christmas until before work and school start after New Year’s.

Join our Holy Land Christmas-Break Pilgrimage from December 26 – January 4. We have special events arranged for kids. We also have a great pilgrimage going February 11-20, 2015 and another May 11-20.

FOR THOSE CONCERNED ABOUT SAFETY IN THE HOLY LAND 

Janet and I just returned from the Holy Land with 55 excited and grateful pilgrims. The comment we received the most from these pilgrims was, “This was a very safe and quiet trip. Thank you SO much for not canceling like so many other groups did.”

Many groups canceled precipitously because of the fighting with Gaza (a cyclical event that happens every few years). We understood the situation and knew, 1) it would not effect our travel route, and 2) it would be over before our groups arrived.

 And we were right. With fewer tourists it seemed we had the whole country to ourselves— NO LINES! Easy access to the holy sites and it will be like that for much of our October trip as well. 

Everyone loves the camel rides

To the lovely ladies on the bus, I noticed the vow renewals in Cana. Very beautiful. What happened to the blessing of the rings. Oops I didn’t see any exchange of new rings. Good news I heard this is shopping day. To the men this can be resolved today. Love Misunderstood from Magelda P.S.” If you want it then you should have put a ring on it “

For those committed or considering, don’t let anyone keep you away. Steve and Janet would never put you in danger, and the experience is a once in a lifetime event. I would go back for a fourth time even if missals were flying (which they are not). This land is were our religion was founded, we cannot let events keep us away. You are much safer in Jerusalem than in Detroit.
