Join Marian Jordan Ellis in Israel Next Summer!
Would you like to walk where Jesus walked?
Would you like your faith to grow iimmensely?
Would you like to develop a deeper love for Scripture as it comes to life before your eyes?
If your answer is yes, then join us for a life-changing trip to Israel next summer. Plan now to join Redeemed Girl June 7-16, 2019 as our founder and Bible teacher Marian Jordan Ellis leads a tour thorough the Holy Land.
One of the most significant experiences of my Christian life was my first trip to the Holy Land. I’ll never forget reading the Bible in the very town where Jesus unrolled the scroll of Isaiah and declared that He was the long-awaited Messiah, or the boat ride across the Sea of Galilee where Jesus walked upon the water, or seeing the empty garden tomb where Jesus was buried.
These memories are forever engraved on my heart. My faith grew by leaps and bounds as I walked where Jesus walked. The Bible came to life as I stepped onto the cobble stone streets and dusty roads of Israel. It would bring me the greatest joy to teach you God’s Word in the Holy Land.
