DAYS 1 & 2 – SUNDAY-MONDAY, JUNE 16-17: DEPART & ARRIVAL FOR TEL AVIV
Our departure day for our Israel trip finally came today! God brought together 38 of us for this journey of faith to the land of the Bible. Using various flight connections, we all arrived safely here.
Ben Gurion Airport/Tel Aviv
We landed at the Ben Gurion airport. Following the regular passport procedures, we met our driver (David) and guide (Shlomo). In the late afternoon, the majority of the group made a brief stop in Jaffa (also Joppa), a southern suburb of Tel Aviv. We read from Acts 9-10 here as we walked the alleyways of the city. In the days of the Old Testament, Jonah sailed from here (Jonah 1).
“It is hard to believe that I am in Israel now! Such an incredible dream just to get here. I can’t wait to see all the biblical sites.” – Tour Member –
Driving north through Tel Aviv rush-hour traffic, we arrived in Netanya. We checked into our hotel and enjoyed dinner together. Some went swimming in the Med Sea too!
We are all looking forward deepening our walk of faith here in the land of the Bible.
