  • Caeserea, Haifa, Rosh Hanikra and AcreWe were both up a little after 6AM today but Jonathon was headed out for a fun sightseeing trip and Jill was headed to work (that is why we’re here!). Jonathon packed up the camera and headed down for a Posted by cornelljjs in Israel 2019 | Jan 13, 2019
  • Masada and the Dead SeaJill ended up having a very long night last night. She got sick a few more times during the night and slept very little. Our alarm went off at 6AM this morning and we rolled out to start getting ready. Posted by cornelljjs in Israel 2019 | Jan 12, 2019
  • Jerusalem, River Jordan and the Dead SeaWe woke up around 6:15am with no alarm needed. We got ready and then headed down for breakfast in the hotel. We each had a cappuccino along with some delicious food. The beach was already bustling with activity as the Posted by cornelljjs in Israel 2019 | Jan 11, 2019
  • Israel Day 9 Today was our last full day in Israel, and the nostalgia is already setting in. Something really special happened here over these last several days, and I'm not Posted by emschroen in Israel Trip | Jan 8, 2019

  • Israel Day 6 Today was our first full day in Jerusalem! As expected, this city is very different from Tel Aviv, known as the secular hub of Israel. After breakfast we went Posted by emschroen in Israel Trip | Jan 5, 2019
  • Israel Day 5 I wish there was a word for everything I felt and experienced today. It was definitely the heaviest day of the trip, and there were several stretches of Posted by emschroen in Israel Trip | Jan 4, 2019
  • Israel Day 4 This has probably been one of my favorite days so far. I can't believe everything I've seen and done. Not only have I physically touched pieces of the past, but Posted by emschroen in Israel Trip | Jan 2, 2019
  • Israel Day 3 This morning was a bit more difficult to get started than the previous ones. Not only were there more loud people out celebrating the new year, but a Posted by emschroen in Israel Trip | Jan 1, 2019
  • Israel Day 2 Today was an interesting day to say the least! I was skeptical about the limited sleep time after such a long and grueling day of travel, but I woke up feeling refreshed. It Posted by emschroen in Israel Trip | Jan 1, 2019
  • Israel Day 1 Day one of my Israel trip was a jumbled mix of plane food, sleep deprivation, and drooling open-mouthed in airplane seats. Honestly, on its own the ten hour plane flight might have been bearable, Posted by emschroen in Israel Trip | Dec 31, 2018
  • Traveling, Traveling, Arriving...Hello All! Thank you so much for traveling with us, virtually as least, as we visit the Holy Land and begin to walk in His steps. The trip over was long and grueling, but went smoothly! I took a Posted by Comp Ministries in CM Israel Tour 2018 | Nov 29, 2018
  • Arbel Hike and HistoryToday's hike was at Arbel national park. It has a beautiful view of the Kinneret, although this time of year it's the least green that it's going to be ever. The path isn't particularly long- my Strava says we only walked 2.9 Posted by spsadventures in Adventures by spsadventures | Oct 20, 2018
  • Farewell and GodspeedFarewells are hard. We say to each other, “May you fare well; God be with you; safe travels.” We mean it but there is s Posted by HopeEakins in Journey to the Holy Land | Sep 29, 2018
  • Masada and QumranWe went farther afield today, traveling down beside the Dead Sea to Masada, the site of one of King Herod’s mountain palaces, now an important Jewish icon of their people’s struggle for freedom from oppression. After the Romans Posted by HopeEakins in Journey to the Holy Land | Sep 28, 2018
  • From the Way of the Cross to the Temple StepsWe rose before dawn to walk in silence into the Old City to begin the stations of the cross on the Via Dolorosa. We entered through the Herod Gate and, using our cell phones as flashlights, found our way Posted by HopeEakins in Journey to the Holy Land | Sep 28, 2018
  • A Hard Day in Jerusalem Maybe we pilgrims have been together too long, at least the women among us, for we are starting to look alike. See Mary Quinlan, Hope Eakins and Audrey Lamy below. Maybe we are feeling alike for we Posted by HopeEakins in Journey to the Holy Land | Sep 27, 2018
  • On the way to the cross.Another early departure, this at 7:15 to arrive at the Garden of Gethsemane before the crowds appeared. And we did arrive in the stillness of the day. We sat in the Garden of Agony, a small place filled Posted by HopeEakins in Journey to the Holy Land | Sep 26, 2018
  • Lepers, Samaritan Women and BeerDriving back to Jerusalem after our three days in Nazareth, we took the route through the occupied territories and their attendant checkpoints.

  • Nazareth below the groundFor some, this evening’s surprise was the most amazing of our pilgrimage. We descended beneath the convent to the first century level of a large excavation. The site was discovered, uncovered really, in the 19th century when a Posted by HopeEakins in Journey to the Holy Land | Sep 25, 2018
  • NazarethThe sound of music filled the night air in Nazareth as hundreds of pilgrims gathered in a candlelight procession singing hymns and praying. Our group walked to the basilica and must have looked quite American because an organizer Posted by HopeEakins in Journey to the Holy Land | Sep 25, 2018
  • North to the Galilee Another early departure, this to the Jordan River for the renewal of our Baptismal vows. We did not go to the traditional sites that commemorate Jesus’s Baptism but to a spot north of them where our local tour guide, Posted by HopeEakins in Journey to the Holy Land | Sep 22, 2018
  • Judean Desert, Jericho and NazarethToday began very early. The bus left at 5:45 a.m. to take us to the desert. We rode in silence in the dim morning light, rode down from Jerusalem (@ 2800 feet) to Wadi Qelt (just below Posted by HopeEakins in Journey to the Holy Land | Sep 22, 2018
