A group of 36 folks, mostly from New Hope, are departing on November 2 to tour the sights of Israel and Egypt. We’ll see Nazareth, Galilee, the Jordan River, the Dead Sea and Jerusalem (to name a few places). Some of us will tack on a few more days to see Cairo, the Pyramids, the Nile and other sights in Egypt. All of us should be back in Denver by November 17.
The Holy Land is one of those places I always hoped I’d get to see, but was never sure it would happen. Frankly, we’ve been talking about it so long, it’s still hard to believe we are actually going. I’m looking forward to seeing the places I’ve so far only read about in the Bible. I’m also looking forward to sharing the discoveries we make when we return.
I'm going to try to post while we are away. I won't be able to send pictures, but should have a daily contribution of the latest news from the Middle East.
