A Baptist Twinning tour of the
HOLY LAND

Led by Rev David Ronco

Wednesday 3rd - Thursday 11th April 2019

David has visited the Holy Land many times and as chairman of Baptist Twinning in Israel has developed good relationships with Arab Christians in the Baptist churches there. He writes:-

“I invite you to join this special trip to the Holy Land. As well as exploring many of the fascinating Biblical sites in Galilee and Jerusalem we will experience the joy of fellowship with God’s “living stones”. In Nazareth and Cana we will meet local Christians and in Bethlehem hear what life is like for fellow believers in the West Bank.”

The standard international practice is to let rooms from midday to midday. However times do vary.

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.

Testimonials

“The trip to the Holy Land was an exciting time of learning, travelling and fellowship. The tour guide exceeded expectations and gave new insights in to the Word of God, which was made a lot clearer when we understood more of our Jewish roots. The Bible seems more relevant now and it’s becoming more important for me to watch Israel; the time clock of the world.”
