Safe in Israel

We would never take anyone into harm's way!

It always amazes us when people who would visit Chicago, or St. Louis will claim that Israel is unsafe

I don't know anyone who's afraid afraid to fly into Chicago to see the sights or visit friends. But let four Jewish rabbis get murdered in a synagogue in Jerusalem and it makes headlines all over the world and everyone panics about flying into Tel Aviv, the safest airport in the world. Read my letter about safety in the Holy Land that compares the safety in Jerusalem with Chicago.

Comments & Testimonials
I want to thank you wholeheartedly for such a wonderful experience in the Holy Land. It has already been a tremendous source of joy and blessing for my priesthood. I really want to recommend my Christian brothers and sisters to go to the Holy Land with both of you for a deepened spiritual experience. 

I loved the fact that you did business with the Christians in the Holy Land. We got to meet other Christians who live in a complicated area, some of whom suffer for their faith. There might be temptations to go to others who offer the least expensive alternative, but our local guide, bus driver, hotel owners, and restaurant owners were Christians. It is great to share the experience of these believers. 

Going on your trip afforded me time to pray and worship in the holy places. We didn’t focus on shopping but the experience of the Lord Jesus. We read the Sacred Scriptures in the very places they took place! We were able to celebrate Mass in the most amazing locations too. When I think about how we started our New Year, with Mass at the tomb of Jesus, where HE ROSE FROM THE DEAD, I realize that there is no better way to start the year! Steve’s talks were worth the price of admission, especially at Caesarea-Philippi, where Jesus told Peter, “You are Rock.” His conversion story was also very moving. Our guide, Amir, was also very knowledgeable. Having a guide whose parish church is at Nazareth was delightful. 

The entire trip we were safe. There was not a single pilgrim who felt worried for the own safety during the trip. Thank you for this ideal trip to the Holy Land. Thank you for this important ministry. I look forward to working with you again and continuing to experience the place where the Lord Jesus is still present.
Reverend Daniel F. Good
