Trip to Israel – part 1

I just landed in Israel Wednesday morning and our tour begins this morning (Thursday).

There are two primary purposes of this trip.

1) To experience and research a "tour group" for future Israel trips with our church. They call this a "Familiarization Tour" – primarily for pastors to experience and investigate bringing church groups. There are forty of us on this trip, and I didn't know anyone before our bus ride to the hotel.

2) I'm also doing some research for a future sermon series. I love understanding the history and geography of the Bible so that the Bible can come even more "alive" for people.

Here is my view of my first night in Israel – from my hotel balcony on the Mediterranean Sea.
