It is my responsibility to coordinate all the international details of your trip. In order to effectively administer the trip I will need your cooperation.

Testimonials

  • "What a wonderful time we all had in Israel. Steve cannot be beat, as you well know. Seeing unplanned sites and doing impromptu excursions was icing on the cake; this can only happen with people like Steve and Slava who know the areas and care about the interests of the group. Both are people with servant-hearts. I learned a great deal more than I had expected, and have a much better understanding of the setting for Christ's birth and the circumstances/environment of his death. I enjoyed the hikes and we were blessed with perfect weather. Size of the group was a bonus; enjoyed lasting fellowship; never felt like I couldn't get close enough to hear what Steve was saying. Steve deserves many kudos for his spiritual insights, his kindness, knowledge, flexibility, sense of humor, and all-round positive attitude. Thank You!"
