Yesterday we celebrated our 35thwedding anniversary. As we reflected on our marriage, we talked about keys that have helped us and practices we wish we had incorporated earlier in our marriage. We thought we’d share our list and hope it’s helpful for you as you Build Your Marriage:
Is a trip to Israel right for you? Most of us consider traveling to Israel at some point in our lives. Ask yourself these 10 questions to determine if 2018 is the time for you:
1. Is going to Israel on your “bucket list”?
This is a rare opportunity to check it off together. Our trip is November 27 – December 4.
2. Is it safe?
In 2017 there were 3.6 million tourists to Israel from around the world—an increase of 25% from the year before. Being part of a group with experienced tour guides assures your added safety and comfort.
3. How is the climate?
Traveling in November is the perfect time to travel in Israel as the average temperature is in the 50’s.
4. What about ease of travel?
Going with a group means your arrangements are taken care of for you. You get a buffet breakfast each morning and dinner each evening (included!). The bus takes you to each site and all you have to do is soak in the experience.
5. What will I see?
You will experience the places Jesus did. Your reading of the Bible and perspective at key holidays will forever be redefined and enhanced. You’ll see Bethlehem (days before Christmas!), the Church of the Nativity, Jericho, Qumran, the Dead Sea, the Mount of Beatitudes, Capernaum, and you’ll cross the Sea of Galilee. Jerusalem, the Temple Mount, the Garden of Gethsemane, the Garden Tomb and more will be visited during your visit.
6. What will I learn?
You will grow in your Biblical knowledge and understanding.
7. What else will I experience?
You’ll make new friends, enjoy great food, you can float in the Dead Sea, and renew your wedding vows in the Chapel at Cana. (We also hear the ice cream is amazing! 🙂 )
8. Will I receive tools for my marriage?
Yes! Some of the evenings include Build Your Marriage sessions with Brad & Heidi Mitchell.
9. How much does it cost?
Until August 14ththe price is under $5,000 per couple. That includes airfare for two from New York, hotel, meals, admission fees, hotel gratuities, bus and more! Singles can come as well! Click the link below for additional details.
