Testimonials from our Travelers

Hi Sara,

What a wonderful time Ken and I had in Israel. It was such an overwhelming spiritual and emotional experience. Our tour guide, Joam , was a wealth of Israel history. He provided us with sites and information that took us back in time. It was amazing!  It was also very nice to meet your brother at our last dinner together.

The renewal of our 50th marriage vows in Cana was extraordinary, especially the little party of wine and sweets after the ceremony. Going that extra mile was appreciated.

Pastor Giles showed us everyday what a good shepherd he is by being concerned with his flock of people 24 hours a day X 10 days. He was always there ready to help each and everyone who needed help. We experienced that when our luggage was tagged, by the check in person in Israel, to go straight to Raleigh. So when we landed in JFK Ken and I started toward the AA terminal. However, we did not realize that instead our luggage landed at JFK. Pastor Giles saw our luggage, phoned us, and told us he would make sure that our luggage went to Raleigh. He didn't have to do that, the tour was over, and that was our responsibility.  Instead, he again took care of us just like a good shepherd.  What a glorious ending to our tour when we saw our luggage coming down the carousal. Thank you ABBA and Pastor Giles.

We sincerely thank everyone involved in our trip.
Ken and Pat Kasprzyk
