Come Along With Tim & Diana Timmons to Israel
"In search of Jesus"
10 Full Days-9 Nights: February 22-March 5
An all-inclusive 5-Star Trip for only $3509 (double occupancy)

We know what you're thinking: "You're going to Israel with Iran and Israel threatening one another?" This is my 33rd trip to Israel and we have yet to plan a trip that wasn't in the midst of turmoil. But once we arrived in Israel, there is a wonderful feeling of the reality of peace and safety. Of course, we will not go, if it is unsafe! 

This is truly a trip of a lifetime! As when people encountered Jesus they were never the same, so will it be with you as you meet up with Jesus and follow Him in His homeland! One of the amazing benefits of walking where Jesus walked is that your Bible will never be the same again. It actually comes alive in your reading as you reflect on your experiences from this trip. After taking hundreds of people to meet Jesus in Israel and Palestine, no one has returned the same!

We have 3 goals for our trip. FIRST-To get to know Jesus better! SECOND-To learn to love each other! THIRD-To wait for Jesus to show up among us with unique experiences and opportunities! Please reserve your seat as soon as possible, because space is limited!

We'll continue to the source of the Dan River, which leads into the Jordan River. At the Tel Dan Nature Reserve we will be treated to a refreshing walk to view the Abrahamic Gate. In our travels we will be able to view the borders of Lebanon, Syria and Jordan. On this evening we will enjoy a special festive dinner at a private restaurant on the Sea.

From here we continue on the road to Masada, a spectacular desert fortress. We will take the cable car up the high, rocky cliffs of Masada to explore Herod's palaces and learn of its powerful story of perseverance. Masada overlooks the Dead Sea, where we will visit to give you opportunity to float in the Sea and experience its healing minerals. This is the lowest place on earth!

After checking into our beautiful hotel for the next five nights, we will enjoy dinner together.
