The Campbells’ trip to Israel

I am not sure I can accurately describe how we (Rochelle and I) feel about visiting Israel.  One the one hand we can’t wait to do something extraordinary.  Two words – excited and ecstatic! On the other hand it almost does not seem real.  We visit these places of the Bible on a weekly basis through preaching services and in our singing about spiritual things.  Much of what we read in Holy Scripture occurred within the areas we will be walking around in with our tennis shoes (“sneakers” for PA residents).

I thought it would be helpful for you to have an itinerary of where we will be on certain days.  We will be with 40 other pastors and their wives over the next ten days.  Dr. John Vaughn and Dr. Craig Hartman are leading the trip which has been extended to us as a study trip for those in pastoral ministry.  Thank you for praying for us and we will see you when we return.

Thursday – We depart from Newark airport late in the evening and fly through the night.

Friday – Arrive in Tel Aviv and get to where we need to be.

Saturday – Caesarea, Mt. Carmel, Megiddo, Nazareth, Arbel Cliffs

Sunday – Capernaum, Mt. of Beatitudes, Peter’s Primacy, Tel Dan, Caesarea Philippi, and a boat ride on the Sea of Galilee

Monday – Beit Shean, Wadi Qelt, Abraham’s tent, Shrine of the Book, Second Temple Model, Jerusalem Promenade

Tuesday – Dead Sea, Masada, Ein Gedi, Qumran, Shepherds’ Fields

Wednesday – Temple Mount, Pool of Bethesda, Southern Steps, Yad Hashmona

Thursday – Western Wall, Antonia Fortress, Church of the Holy Sepulcher, Temple Institute, Western Wall Tunnel

Friday – Mount of Olives, Garden of Gethsemane, Caiaphas’ House, David’s Tomb, Upper Room, Garden Tomb

Saturday – Leave for home with great lifelong memories!
