Israel - March, 2014
When was the last time you touched the tomb where Christ was laid
or sat on the ground where the Apostles heard the blessings of the beatitudes?
Aside from an amazing pilgrimage, we had great trip with a lot of fun! Did you
ever float in the Dead Sea or take a cable car to the top of the ancient city of
Masada? Wow!!! It was breathtaking.

They received a well-deserved standing ovation.
