Tuesday 14th - Wednesday 22nd August 2018

Kevin Baldwin is the Life exhibition coordinator, based in West Norfolk, he is a schools worker in the area and has been a Bible teacher in both church and schools for many years.

This trip is ideal for teachers as it combines both history and faith. Kevin has led trips to the Holy land previously, the last one in August 2014.
