  • "First of all, the trip was wonderful. I realize more and more how much of a gift it was since arriving home. It was a true blessing to have someone of the caliber of Steve leading it. While I have no criticisms, I would like to share how my mindset changed during the trip. Prior to arrival, I thought the journey would impact me more spiritually. In fact, my experience evolved into a history lesson where I become somewhat disconnected from the sites on a spiritual level. I was a little concerned with myself not having that spiritual impact. Mentioning this mind set to one of my fellow travelers, she stated she felt the same way but was not concerned as God is everywhere and Christianity is not really fueled by locations, but rather by the Spirit. That statement really hit home at the time and provided me a sense of peace. I stopped worrying about the spiritual side and just let the trip unfold. Looking back, the true blessing was the trip and the lessons grounded in the Bible for me. I know more now about the land of Jesus, the terrain and distances involved. It has made my Bible study come more alive as I can now place all of the locations. That takes sort of the "logical" mystery out of the Bible for me, and I can better focus on the spiritual side. Since coming home, I found myself more at a sense of peace than before on many levels. The mere act of such a travel experience -- I had never gone any farther than Mexico -- combined with the Bible history lesson broadened my mind and soul. The trip continues to grow on me since arriving home. For me, now is the time of spiritual fulfillment. In a few years, I hope to take my wife and would not hesitate -- in fact would seek out -- an Emmaus trip. Thanks and God Bless."
