Kris and I are inviting you to consider a trip with us through some cities of the apostles in Asia Minor (Turkey), a four day walking tour from Nazareth down to Capernaum — alongside the beautiful Sea of Galilee — and then a day excursion in Jerusalem.
Because these kinds of trips have to planned well in advance, we are asking those who are “lingering” or “wondering” to do what they can to make a decision…
The big picture: we will fly into Instanbul (Constantinople), tour some of the cities of Peter and Paul and John in Asia Minor, fly to Tel Aviv, get a bus to Nazareth, Jesus’ home town, and then the unique part of this trip is that we will go on a four-day hike from Nazareth to Capernaum. Then we will bus down to Jerusalem to spend a day in Jerusalem.
Please think of joining Kris and me on this life-time of memories tour. Our intent is to join other Christians in reflecting on our faith as we experience the holy land and sacred spaces that were significant in the lives of Jesus and the apostles.
Yes, of course, daily meditations and Bible studies and excursions into history and archaeology in order to illuminate the Bible and our faith.
We are happy to announce the original expected cost for the tour has dropped 10%!
