Pastor Fred along with Marge Bourne and Janet Tryon and former associate pastor, Deanna Snyder, are off to tour the Holy Land from today until January 18th! They will be a part of a delegation of 102 from Iowa and Michigan traveling with Bishop Laurie Haller and her husband. They will fly from Des Moines to NYC and on to Tel Aviv. First stops will be at Caesarea by the Sea, Mount Carmel, and Megiddo and Nazareth, with a whole day around the Sea of Galilee. They will go on to visit Tel Dan, Caesarea Philippi, the Golan Heights, Bethsaida and the Jordan River. From there, they will see Jericho, the Qumran, Masada and the Dead Sea. Finally the tour will arrive in Jerusalem where a few days will be spent seeing the historical and biblical sites.

Let us offer prayers for safe travels and a wonderful experience for Pastor Fred, Marge Bourne, Janet Tryon, former associate pastor Deanna Snyder, Bishop Laurie Haller and her husband, and the Iowa and Michigan delegation as they travel through the Holy Land.
