My bretheren in Christ, following our successful pilgrimage to Israel in 2014, I take this opportunity to highly recommend and encourage you all to experience this life changing opportunity.
It is only appropriate that I also attach a few photos to share with you. As good Christians, I can only assure you that when you do return home after such an experience you will do so as a different person spiritually, emotionally and as an individual.
To walk in the footsteps of our Lord Jesus Christ and to appreciate His power, His might, His mercies and His ultimate sacrifice for our salvation will no doubt bring tears of repentance, joy and deliverance to each and every one. May He continue to be our constant companion, protector and deliverer as we strive to walk in His in His ways.
God bless you as you join and partake!
Pastor Julius Brown.

Room Check In and Check Out Times
The standard international practice is to let rooms from midday to midday. However times do vary. Check-in times are usually between 2pm and 3pm, check-out times between 11am and 12 noon on the day of departure. Therefore, if you check-in immediately after a night flight this would normally count as one night’s accommodation. Similarly if your return flight is at night you will normally be required to vacate your room at 12 noon prior to leaving for the airport. Day rooms are subject to availability/cost and should be arranged locally with the accommodation management.
