“Those who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings
like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.” - Isaiah 40:31

My wife and I were having the time of our life on the trip of a lifetime, when the unthinkable happened. We received a call that our little 6-year-old boy, Josiah, had been in a horrible car accident, was in critical condition and would possibly not survive. We were shocked and paralyzed all at once. Harriet and Doran, our Israeli guide, awakened from their sleep and stayed up the remainder of the night making phone calls, offering comfort and taking care of all the intricate details to get us to Tel Aviv in time to get the earliest flight back to the states and at the bedside of our little boy. They were, simply put, amazing. And had it not been for their incredible effort, and the support of many other friends on the trip, I'm really not sure how we would have coped. Our little boy not only survived the crash, but is doing wonderfully and has almost made a complete recovery. Thank you Harriet and Doran for your professionalism and compassion expertly demonstrated in a very difficult time for us. Can't wait to travel with you again, and this time with our son by our side!! - Pastor Dave

My trip to Israel and Jordan with Harriet and Phyllis was one of the best and most spiritually rewarding experiences of my entire life. The local guides were very personable, interesting and engaging. The accommodations were wonderful. Above all, though, the itinerary for the trip is what made it so special. When you go someplace like Israel, a bad tour can leave you feeling like you’ve ‘missed something.’ I left Israel and Jordan feeling like I had ‘seen everything.’ It was one of the best two weeks of my life.” - Ken Voiles

I've made 3 European trips with Harriet (Phyllis has been on 2 of them) and I think that says it all. Well done, great fun and she was lots of help. - Kathy Jensen

Our tour of Israel/Jordan was extremely well organized, informative, and interesting. Harriet and Phyllis did a wonderful job putting this trip together. Even though we joined the group at the last minute, they did a great job accommodating us. The pre-trip information sessions were very helpful and we felt very prepared to make this trip. They kept the group organized and moving in a light-hearted way and we felt safe everywhere we went. A trip of a lifetime made even better by wonderful group leaders. - Dawn Lubker

Imagine getting 30-plus adults and teenagers motivated and organized to go to Israel and Jordan. Add a tireless professional effort to book airlines flights, tour guides and comfortable air-conditioned buses and hotels and wonderful food! Oh yes, add another 30-plus people and their families from another state who would join the first group at Ben Gurion Airport in Tel Aviv ... without the loss of a single piece of luggage. And did we mention we had the trip of a lifetime walking in Jesus' footsteps with the help of the experienced guides with whom Harriet and Phyllis have frequently worked? Reading scripture takes on a new meaning when you have walked in those places, prayed in those places and sung in those places from where Jesus' ministry evolved. This was a trip of a lifetime because of our experienced travel agents, Harriet and Phyllis. Their expertise allowed us to relax and simply enjoy every minute. What are you waiting for? Go. You will never forget what a wonderful experience the Holy Land can be! - Ken and Kathy Kester

I can't say enough about how much I enjoyed our trip to Israel. It was truly a trip of a lifetime and one which I never dreamed I would make. You and Doron as our guides made it special. Everything was so well thought out and just wonderful. Our accommodations were beyond my wildest dreams and every place that we went was great. To try to put a trip like this together on one’s own would not be possible. The Bible will never be the same to me. Thanks to you and Harriet and our guide, Doron, it was like a big family trip. - Charlotte Domes

Traveling to Israel with a Christian group brought the Bible to life for us. Harriet, Phyllis, and their wonderful Jewish guide, Doran, took us to the actual places from the Old and New Testament readings. There were so many awe-inspiring moments; standing on the shore of the Sea of Galilee, where Jesus called His disciples: riding on a boat on the Sea of Galilee, owned by a Jewish Christian while singing ‘Amazing Grace’ while seeing the hill where the angel told the sheperds to ‘fear not’; standing where David slew Goliath; standing on the Mount of Olives; traveling on the road Christ took into Jerusalem. These and many more memories will stay with us for the rest of our lives. We would go again with no hesitation. - Dave and Angel Baumhefner

The Lenten Season makes my sister Marilyn and I remember our wonderful trip to Israel. Now, when we listen to our services and the Pastor mentions places Jesus was during this time we have a visual. Of course, we saw more than the areas of the Passion ... The guides you chose had biblical and historical knowledge beyond expectations. Historical, yes, but biblical, we were so impressed. Also, their English was excellent. They were there to handle any situation ‘after hours’ as well ... even when we were close to their respective homes.

We thought the lodging at the kibbutz's were good. It was interesting to see the places where so many young people went to work and contribute to Israel. We liked staying in one place and going out to our sights from there for a few days ... before moving on to the next Kibbutz.

The Boat ride on the Sea of Galilee was so special ... Having a demonstration from Daniel Carnel on how the fishermen in those times threw out the lines and fished was so interesting. His talk and singing, as we sailed along, was so moving, we’ll never forget that time. I have a stone from the Sea of Galilee with a Cross on it and it is very special to me.

There is so much more, but, we wanted you to know what a good job you did in organizing the Denver Group for this trip with your Sister and her Florida Group. We highly recommend traveling with Harriet.
Happy Fellow Travelers,
Kay Stefan and Marilyn Werner
