My name is Randy and I have been in love with the Israel of the bible for a long time. Since I became a Christian, I’ve read about the land and been a strong supporter of its people, the Jews. I always wanted to go to the Holy Land so in 2010, I planned my trip with my wife Pauline. We also had planned a trip to Egypt and Jordan but because of the anti-government uprising, we changed the trip to just Israel.
Our original itinerary was to include the travel of the route of the biblical exodus to Egypt, Jordan, and Israel. We were to see one of the Seven Wonders of the World, the Pyramids of Giza and much more. To Jordan and the magical Rose City of Petra, and continue to Mt. Nebo from which Moses viewed the Promised Land, and see first-hand Caesarea, Megiddo, Haifa, Acre, Tiberias, Capernaum, Banias, Nazareth, Beit Shean, the Dead Sea, Massada and experience the Golden city of Jerusalem. But because of civil unrest our trip only included Israel.
Wow, what a trip! It just made the Bible come alive, to know you were in the place where human kind and the Divine came together. It was a Spiritual journey, knowing I was in the same places where Jesus walked and taught.
We started planning for at least 18 months in advance. Now I would like to share my passion of the Holy Land with you. In future posts, I will put pictures that will at times include my wife or me. This is because when I was young I would see travel photos without any people or references to where they were from and toss them. Now my family has a travel picture history of my wife and myself.
We will be giving more pictures and stories in future of our travel to the Holy Land of God.
