Q. Do I need a passport?
A. Yes. Absolutely. You cannot leave the country without a passport.
Q. What about safety?
A. When talking about traveling
to the Holy Land, the question of safety always comes up particularly
with friends and family of the person or persons wanting to go.
I always tell people the most dangerous part of the trip to Israel
will be your time spent in New York! Seriously, everytime
in Israel it makes international news. Can you imagine if everytime
there was a violent crime committed in Atlanta or Dallas it
made international news? No one would ever want to visit
those cities if we applied the same logic as some Americans do
to visiting the Holy Land.
Q. Will we have a opportunity to be baptized in the Jordan
A. Yes, for all those who wish to. Others can watch on as
well as join us in song and prayer.
Q. What about clothing?
A. You will be required to wear
clothes on our tour. I have always made that mandatory. But what
kind of clothes is up to the individual. Casual attire is best
with comfortable walking shoes. Jeans, windsuits, etc. Also, you
will need to bring your bathing suit as we will have an opportunity
to swim in the Dead Sea which is a very unique experience.
Q. What about weather?
A. Normal mid-March temperatures
are in the low 70s during the day and mid 50s in the evening.
Q. Where do we fly out of from the U.S.?
A.We gather at JFK airport in New York, three hours before our flight leaves, taking us to Israel. Everyone makes their own travel arrangements
to JFK where I will be meeting group 3 hours before departure.
Q.How will we get around the Holy Land?
A. We will be on a very comfortable
motorcoach. We will also have our own bus driver assigned to us
the entire trip as well as a professional tour guide who is an
Israeli citizen. I always use Christian tour guides.
