Thanks from a Deacon and his Wife (and a Travel Agent) – Lovely!
by Steve Ray on March 1, 2019
Dear Steve and Janet,
We know you are most likely very busy preparing for your next Holy Land departure.
It has been almost one week since our own return and the fruit of our Holy Land pilgrimage continues to manifest itself in our lives. As Deacon Steve has said, it was a trip of a lifetime.
We each took away our own personal highs and many shared “couple” moments that we will remember in this lifetime and, God willing, take with us into the next.
We know you must receive many compliments for the well-planned and thought-out pilgrimages you lead. And, we would be ones who would echo that! For us, we could see how invested you both are culturally, socially and spiritually with our brethren in the Holy Land making this pilgrimage seem very personal.
Thank you for all you have done and continue to do to build up His kingdom. Our prayers are with you as you lead another group of God’s holy people.
May God bless each of you with peace, joy, good health and many blessings,
Deacon Steve and Carol
ADDED SUBSEQUENT TO POSTING THE DEACON’S E-MAIL
Brian and I agree totally. We were just watching the video of our Holy Land trip with you last September, and it reaffirmed our commitment to return to the Holy Land again with you next year. It is something we will remember for the rest of our lives. We have been blessed to have traveled quite a bit in our life, but nothing can compare to the Holy Land, and I would not travel there with anyone else but you.
And I am a travel agent and have many opportunities to travel with anyone I choose to go with. I have told many of my friends in our parish about your pilgrimages and encourage them to contact you so that they can have as wonderful and spiritual a journey as Brian and I did. God bless you and Janet. Hope to see you next year.
