Enjoyable Trip – Walter Maben
Let me congratulate you on all the troubles you’ve gone through which has made this trip an enjoyable and a memorable one. The hotel where we were accommodated, the air-conditioned buses in which we travelled around, the meals that were served and the highly knowledgeable guides that took us around were all par excellence and much beyond our expectations. Most of all, we must be grateful to our loving God for being with us throughout and ensuring we did not face any obstacles anywhere. It was a thoroughly enjoyable trip and no amount of our saying "thanks" would be sufficient.
A Spiritual Journey - By a recent tour member
They say a trip to Israel will change your life. That might sound a bit dramatic, but it certainly changed mine. !!!
One of my most vivid memories of the trip occurred at the Mount of Beatitudes when a Pastor from our tour began reading the Beatitudes quietly. As he spoke, I took a deep breath and listened to the words read from Matthew chapter 5.
"Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.
Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth…."
As he spoke, something in me began to untangle and let go. I'd been on a spiritual journey prior to this trip, wrestling with God and filled with a lot of questions and doubt. But now, hearing these words again that were first spoken some 2,000 years ago, tears came to my eyes. Embarrassed, I pushed them down, but I sensed a still, small voice saying to me, "Let it go. You don't have to be embarrassed. It's okay to cry." So I let my heart lead and let go of my shame and confusion. The pastor finished his reading and said a soft prayer. I couldn't stop crying; I didn't know why and I didn't care. The group dispersed, and I wandered the gardens alone whispering to God, thanking Him, telling Him what a beautiful place and moment He had created. I was grateful He'd brought me on this journey — both physically and spiritually.
A few days later, I was also baptized in the Jordan River. I didn't fully realize how this would affect my life until I returned home and found myself walking closer with God than I ever had, filled with a new hunger for His truth and His love. No matter where you are in your spiritual journey — whether you're Christian or Jewish — going to Israel, a place so rich in Biblical history, will change your life. There is a spiritual energy in this land like no other. Bless you.
Healing from severe knee pain
I was booked to go to Israel and suddenly I started having terrible knee pain, my entire leg used to go numb at times. The tour date was fast approaching and I did not want to cancel the tour at this stage and decided to go see a doctor. I was prescribed medication for 3 months. I took all my medicines with me and trusting God I went on the tour. I started to experience the healing touch of God while travelling itself. Normally when I sit for a longer time in the flight my leg swells up, but this time I noticed there was no swelling. Even during our Holy site visits, I noticed there was absolutely no pain and I was able to finish the tour comfortably.One particular day, I did not use the lift to my hotel room that was located on the 9th floor as there was a big queue waiting to board the lift , I did not have the patience to wait and I took the stairs all the way to the 9th floor. I did not experience any feeling of exhaustion or any sign of knee pain. It’s amazing to see how God can carry us through when we put all our cares and worries on Him. He will send His angels to go before us and the God of Israel Himself will be our rear guard. Ex: 23:20; Is 52:12
