Our Group

A Special "Thank you" must go out to #1) My wife - for allowing me to fulfill a dream I have always had to go to the holy land and for her wonderful talent in taking most of these photos, #2) To my home church, New Life, at Waynesburg for helping us with a very large financial contribution and for their prayers while we were away, and #3) to the Eagle (vulture) Heights Church for letting us tag along with their group during this incredible journey.
