Israel Tour with Amy Fennimore & Moye Stauffer - May 2024

View Dates & Pricing

Dear Friends, Amy and Moye invite you to join us in celebrating the Jewish roots of our faith in Jesus Christ, God’s son, Yeshua the Messiah. We’ll visit Bethlehem where He was born; we’ll sail on the Sea of Galilee where He stilled the storm; and pray in the Chapel of the Beatitudes, where Jesus preached His Sermon on the Mount. We will view Golgotha where He died; and we’ll celebrate the Lord’s Supper outside the empty Garden Tomb! You can even be baptized in the Jordan River if you choose to. We will see the locations of stories from the Old Testament and learn how geography is still shaping modern Israel. Our tour will enhance our biblical knowledge so that we will forever after read Scripture with different eyes. All this will be done in warm fellowship with other believers from many parts of the United States. We’ll sing praises to the Lord every day as we travel through the land of the Bible, and of course, we will also laugh a lot! We promise you an unforgettable journey that will deepen your faith and increase your joy. Don’t miss this special pilgrimage with us. Blessings and love to you, Amy West Fennimore Moye West Stauffer
