Traveling with Steve and Janet Ray to the Holy Land was a thoroughly delightful experience. Their knowledge of the Holy Land, the Scriptures, and their love for the Roman Catholic Church was engaging and inspiring. I would happily recommend any of their pilgrimages. With their guidance, you will be blessed!
Here we are on the last day of the most awesome pilgrimage ever. And I want to thank Steve and Janet Ray and the whole team. Every day was just blessings, blessings and more blessings.
We have always enjoyed our trips (all 5 of them) with you and Janet. You bring your love of the Lord and His word alive for us. As you have always said, the Holy Land was a safe place.
Just to let you know the wood carving we purchased arrived here 5 days after we got home. Amazing! Keep taking your pilgrims the Bethlehem Nativity Store.
Thank you for taking such good care of each and everyone us.
Dear Steve & Janet,
Last week at my Catholic Bible study of about 100 members I gave a reflection on John 18 and was able to share so many thoughts and stories from our wonderful pilgrimage experience. I included pictures of Gethsemane, the Basilica of the Agony, and St. Peter’s in Gallicantu where I had a special “Peter moment” of my own. Of course, I cried during the talk, but considering I cried as I wrote it, it was no surprise to me. Plus, that happens so often (especially at Mass) I’ve practically come to expect it… Can’t wait to see what Holy Week has in store.
So many of us pilgrims here, who see each other regularly, say the same things about our emotions. Yet we’re doing all we can to share the Holy Land with the people we know here. It’s already been 4 months and yet it still consumes us!
I know we thanked you in person as we parted our ways after the trip, but I’d like to thank you again as I continue to relive the experience over and over in my mind and look at our pictures on a regular basis. Thank you too for the whole movie of our trip on the thumb drive with the downloads of the daily pictures from your website.
We continue to share with others the importance of making the pilgrimage and of supporting Christianity in the Holy Land. And we’re even starting to wonder, “When can we go back?!”
With Much Love,
Hello Stephen and Janet,
I just had to write a short note to the most wonderful folks I have ever met. It has been over 10 years now, but I will never forget every day spent with both of you and all the great pilgrims on the first pilgrimage to the Holy Land in 2005.
My brother and I applaud the blessed work the two of you do to bring thousands of pilgrims to the lands where our Lord walked. I go to your sites on the internet from time to time to keep abreast of your “work.”
May God bless both of you, Eddie
