Jerusalem, the empty grave of Jesus and the Jordan river

What a wonderful trip to Israel we had in 2010!

There were 50 of us, ranging in age from 29 to 82 years. We walked and walked to see as much of the Holy Land as we could in just 2 weeks; we talked and laughed and ate and prayed together and we became a “family”, bound together by the life-changing experience of “standing on holy ground”. It was an unforgettable experience as we worshipped on a boat on the Sea of Galilee, as Eric baptized some of the group in the Jordan River, as we prayed at the Garden of Gethsemane, as we worshipped at the field in Bethlehem where Jesus was born, and shared communion at the empty tomb; as we shared a Sabbath meal together, stood overlooking the valley of Armageddon and as we prayed at the Wailing Wall for the peace of Jerusalem. But it was also a holiday, so we rode camels, floated in the Dead Sea, bargained in Jerusalem’s market place, bought “harem” pants, sang in the bus, ate falafels and shawermas and took hundreds of photos.

Join us this year as we visit Israel and Egypt: Our tour will take place in October 2011 with dates and costs to be confirmed.  Please register your interest by emailing us on admin@ehcuk.com
