A United Methodist Church Biblical Journey Through ISRAEL

Led by Pastor KH Mudambanuki

Monday 28th September - Monday 5th October 2020

A tour to Israel would benefit every Christian. We will be leading a United Methodist Group from the UK in 2020 to explore the Holy Land (Israel).

This visit to the Holy land will greatly enhance our understanding of the context in which the bible was established and the environment that Jesus did his ministry as well as enhancing my pastoral ministry.

To be sure, many truths in Scripture we have to accept by faith. But the lands of the bible are still there to see. The places where Jesus walked, taught, and healed are accessible to all.

As Christians we teach and preach each week about Jesus and the places which He visited that we have never seen in person yet, the truths of Scripture are rooted within a grammatical-historical and geographical context.

Once a Christian adds geography to his/her preaching, the accuracy of his/her communication increases

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.
