From the beautiful shores of the Sea of Galilee, to the synagogue ruins of Capernaum, to the Dead Sea, Mt. Zion, Gethsemane, Calvary, the Upper Room, or the Garden Tomb, it would be a hard task to pick a favorite place in the Holy Land. The “In His Steps” tour last November led by Dr. Wayne and Bonnie Wilks and Pastor Olen and Syble Griffing quickly became a life-changing experience for the 43 pilgrims who journeyed together as one sweet community through the ancient and modern land. The Bible sprang to living color with each site we visited. One moment I will never forget was the baptism at the very spot where Jesus was baptized in the Jordan River. It barely rains in Israel, maybe 2 inches a year. But it poured rain during the baptisms and afterword a glorious rainbow appeared. It was a blessing sent from heaven.
