CHRYSOGON G - PILGRIM:
On a "regular" tour, we acquire a large amount of information - a western tour. On this tour/expedition, we get close enough to the land that Israel really gets under our skin. I've never had the covenant taught like it was today - never seen mercy so clearly in the Old Testament.
HEATHER H - MISSIONARY:
I am so, so, so thankful for the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to come here. I'm soaking it all up. Thank you! Also, thanks for taking us off the beaten track... I am glad to imagine and interact vs. just visit tombs & churches.
KEN Z- HOME RENOVATOR:
God really met me and touched my heart. It was a spiritual journey for my soul. The hiking, although somewhat strenuous, gets your mind set on what Jesus and his forefathers experienced.
BOB C - CONSULTANT:
I recommend this trip highly to anyone who wants to make a connection between the Written Word and the Holy Land.
ANN W - RETIRED:
This was a once in a lifetime experience for me. The trip was exhausting but worth it; the hiking was an awesome experience. I think Cam and Mark did well by setting the tone, being friendly to each of us and mingling with everyone at meal times.
DENNIS R - LAWYER
Great organization. Great teaching. Great everything. Thanks. The entire experience, the challenges: physical and spiritual were excellent. The group interaction was excellent.
PER L - MEDICAL DOCTOR:
Incredible teaching!!! Everyday, I feel challenged, blessed an encouraged.
WENDY C - MUSIC TEACHER:
Every day held a new highlight; just when I would think I had seen or done the best, something else would happen.
LESLIE W - PILGRIM:
The past one and a half years, Jesus has taken me on a journey of "inner healing". I know God has something very special for me here. How cool to wander around in His desert as He brings me out of mine!
CAMELLIA P - MEDICAL DOCTOR:
Thank you for your teaching, thought provoking questions and constant shepherding. I feel like I have come to a spiritual feast in these past days - one that will continue to feed me once I am home.
JOHN F - RETIRED:
For me, the tour has been a perfect mix of hiking, historical facts, biblical relevance and personal growth application.
MOSES M - CAMP DIRECTOR, ZAMBIA:
With a grateful heart, I write to sincerely thank you for the warm welcome and kind support in Israel. The experience was amazing, life changing and edifying. It was very interesting to know that Jesus’ disciples were much younger than him, except for Peter. From that, it is evident on how important it is to invest in young people. I now read the Bible with different lenses.
WAYNE M - REALTOR:
This was an awesome experience. Kobe (our Israeli guide) added great value to our trip with his updates on Israel's political situation and wars since 1967. You guys are doing an awesome ministry and I encourage you to take this to all churches.
THE LUTZ'S - BUSINESS:
It’s hard to believe that we’ve been home a month already. My pictures are still a mess, but we’ve shown bits and pieces to so many folks and all our memories come flooding back as we share the unbelievable experiences we encountered with the group.
JANI U - CHILDREN'S WORKER, ZAMBIA:
Thank you so much Fifth Gospel for allowing God to use you to organize such a wonderful trip to Israel that was fully packed with great rabbinical lessons. My prayer is that the Lord will use me to disciple children in the same manner that Jesus did.
JENNIFER F - MISSIONARY:
I loved the trip. I have learned so much from the teachings, the history of the Jewish culture and the people on the trip. I believe I have fallen in love with Israel and have seen how much the Lord loves His people and all of us.
HELEN V - MISSIONARY
So many insightful life lessons based upon principles from Scripture, and taught in a rabbinical model with much passion! Will stay in my heart always.
Grace R - Pilgrim:
Today was a very challenging day for me, but also a day of great accomplishment. I know that the Shepherd was giving me strength and that I had to rely on Him to finish the race. I can see why the Israelites grumbled and complained: I would do the same.
REBECCA R - STUDENT:
It was great to discuss how we keep the Sabbath. It gave me an understanding of what it means to "rest". Sabbath isn't just a time to stop doing things, but a time to do things that re-energize me.
EVERLYN C - MINISTRY DIRECTOR, ZAMBIA:
This trip was a life changing experience; I now have a different perspective altogether. God is the living, running water in the sun-scorched desert. I have a very good impression of the land, the people and their culture because of the teaching and explanation of Pastor Mark. I will always value this wonderful experience.
