Israel Study Tour – March 2020
Anyone I meet these days quickly learns something about me: I am passionate about archaeology and how it relates to the Bible. My wife, Cathy, has termed a phrase that describes what I often do when I get into conversations with people--I "firehose" them.
It isn't my intention; I simply get excited about how strongly the Bible is grounded in truth, and I want others to understand that reality as clearly as I do. Encouragingly, when many of the folks getting "firehosed" notice Cathy subtly signalling me to wrap up the conversation, they laugh and declare themselves completely interested and only too happy to get "drenched" by my enthusiasm.
That shared interest, which I encounter in so many, is what excites me to lead Israel study tours. The opportunity to take people to significant Biblical sites and explain how the evidence of archaeology lines up with the story of redemption...it doesn't get any better!
If you also love learning about the Bible and growing in your understanding of the incredible ways God has been at work through the course of history (and you wouldn't mind getting firehosed), then I invite you to join us on our upcoming tour, March 8-19, 2020!
The 2019 Israel Tour was the trip of a life time for us, thank you so much Joel and Cathy for all your hard work. Most of all we appreciated your love for the Lord Jesus and the Word of God. Lord willing we will be back with you one day on another Tour of Israel. Marv and Celine Fanno
Thank you Marv and Celine! It is such a delight to get to enjoy getting to know amazing people like you two (and everyone else on our trip!) while talking about the amazingness of God and His Word. God is SO good! Blessings from all us Kramers.
Our time with you and Dr Bookman was wonderful. Would love to join you again but the hikes are beginning to be a bit much for us old folks. We will certainly encourage all who really are interested in learning (not just seeing the tourist sites) to join you on your next tour. Wish we could!
Jim and Judy Swanson
Thank you Jim and Judy! Yes, those hikes can definitely take it out of you. Thank you for your words of encouragement and for helping to spread the word! 🙂
