Thank you for the opportunity to reflect on the amazing trip to the Holy Land that my wife Jan and I experienced along with 24 others. For me a dream God planted in my heart a year ago came true. After visiting the Holy Land last year with a friend on an educational type tour I had a deep longing to return with a group of Christians and worship in various sacred sites. Overall, the most repeated phrase I've heard from people is "It truly did turn out to be The Trip of a Life-time". Thank you to the Faith Journey's Team for making this pilgrimage possible.
