Testimonials from our Travelers

Hi Sara,

Good to hear from you.  Our trip was smooth and far exceeded the expectations of every single person in our group.  Ziv served our group well as our guide.  Everyone that I talked to from the group found the trip inspiring in many different ways and certainly informative on many levels.  We realized that we only scratched the surface of Israel and hopefully there will be a group in the next few years who will go, possibly with some of the same people who went this time.  We’ll wait to see and keep sharing about our experiences.  We’ve got two talks scheduled here at All Saints, one in May and the other in September, about the trip and we’ll see who might be interested in being part of a trip in the future.

Thanks again for coordinating a great trip for us.
Mike
