About this trip
Brothers and Sisters,
With great excitement and joy, I would like to extend an invitation for you to join me in visitng the places where the history of our salvation was played out, where Jesus taught and worked His signs, where He offered Himself in sacrifice, rose from the dead, and ascended into heaven.
Join me on this trip to the Holy Land and experience the Bible come alive. You will never read it or hear it read the same way. Consider this invitation to Holy Land an opportunity to come to know our Lord more and a chance to grow in our faith handed down to us.
May the Lord keep you in His grace always.
Peace in Christ,
Fr Tim Hepburn
