Holy Land Journey

We started our day with a wake up call at 6:30 a.m., followed by a buffet breakfast. After we all loaded on the bus, Tim Maassarany led us in a devotional on the shores of the Mediterranean.

We drove north to Caesarea, the ancient seaport capital of Israel where Pontius Pilate had his base. I was amazed at the remains of the stadium and the palace where Paul was put on trial.

We continued north to Mount Carmel, overlooking the city of Haifa, where the Prophet Elijah performed his miracle and called upon the fire of God to conquer the Prophets of Baal.

We then continued to Megiddo (Hebrew for Armageddon). Here King Solomon built a giant fortress and city. We walked down, through, and back up the water system that’s been there since the time of Solomon, 3000 years ago!

We drove past Mount Tabor, where tradition states Jesus had the transfiguration with Moses and Elijah. 

We arrived at Kibbutz Hagoshrim, Upper Galilee where we planned to stay for two nights.

Highlights

So much food! Buffet breakfasts and buffet dinners were superb. Everything was delicious.

    • Thanks, Marcia. I’m trying to post more unusual photos – ones that some people might not have seen, even if they’ve been to Israel.

    • Peter, I felt this trip was very well-rounded, taking us all over the country.

      I’m surprised I didn’t gain more weight with all the good food!
