"The worship, spiritual, and geo-political understanding that FRC contributes to the trip makes it an experience not to be missed!" That's just what one of our supporters said about Family Research Council's last trip to Israel. Of our first two trips to the Holy Land, others described their experience as "priceless", "beyond amazing", "exceptional", and "...much more than we ever expected."
There's still time to book your space for FRC's unique third trip to Israel June 2-12, 2020. Lawana and I invite you to join us, along with General Boykin, Michele Bachmann, and Ken Blackwell for an incredible nine days together that, I promise, will change your life. It doesn't matter if you've been there once or a thousand times, the Land of the Bible is always fresh with revelation from the Lord.
Whether you're sailing on the same Sea of Galilee where Jesus calmed the storm, standing in the ruins of Capernaum where he proclaimed "I am the bread of life", journeying up to Jerusalem, the "center of the nations" according to Ezekiel and walking the gold stone streets of the Old City; or remembering the Lord's sacrifice in communion at the Garden Tomb, Israel is unlike any other place on earth. Bible stories you've heard all your life will come alive in a transformative way. We'll worship and fellowship together for meals right by the Sea of Galilee, and in Jerusalem, we'll stay at the beautiful David Citadel Hotel, within view and a short walk to the Old City.
You'll stand on the same Mount Carmel where Elijah called down fire from heaven; gather on the Mt. of Beatitudes where Jesus spoke blessings to the multitudes; gaze from the Mt. of Olives at the Eastern Gate on Temple Mount where Jesus will walk through when He returns; float in the Dead Sea and journey into the wilderness of Ein Gedi, the rocky wilderness where David penned the Psalms. You'll also see the City of David, where ancient Jerusalem is being brought to life; stand in the ruins of Shiloh, where the Ark of the Covenant rested for 369 years; and worship together at Caesarea where Paul was imprisoned; and Caesarea Philippi, where Jesus asked the disciples, "who do you say that I am?" These are just a few of the places where we'll journey together. We'll have great times of fellowship, worship, and ministry of the Word every day.
Not only will your faith deepen as you walk the ancient paths, but we'll offer you the unique opportunity to hear from Israeli leaders about the geopolitical landscape of the region and what's happening right now in the Middle East. Confirmed speakers already include Caroline Glick, Chief Columnist for The Jerusalem Post and expert on Israel's security; Avi Melamed, Middle East Strategic Intelligence Analyst; Ambassador (Ret.) Yoram Ettinger, insider in US-Israel relations; rising leader in the Messianic movement, Guy Cohen, who pastors a congregation in Akko; and Dr. Naim Khoury, my Arab Christian friend who pastors congregations in Bethlehem and Jerusalem. CBN's Middle East Bureau Chief, Chris Mitchell, will travel with us up to the Golan Heights where General Boykin will brief the group. Ari Sacher, Project Manager for Iron Dome is tentatively confirmed, and I have invited Ambassador David Friedman and Minister of Defense Naftali Bennett.
FRC's trip is unlike any other travel experience to the Holy Land, so please prayerfully consider bringing your whole family and joining us for this life-changing time together. If you've been with us before, go with us again and bring your friends! For more information or to book, just visit our website or call 844-872-5155.
