Our pilgrimages run for 7 days. During the seven days and depending on your itinerary you will visit places such as Bethlehem and you will be taken to the place where Jesus was born. 


You will visit the shepherd’s field where the angel came and announced the birth of Jesus to the shepherds. You will visit Jaffa where Peter fell into a trans and the sheet came down from heaven and the Lord asked Peter to get up and eat. (Acts 10:13)


You will visit Jericho the oldest city in the world, and see the sycamore tree that Zacchaeus climbed up to see the Lord. 

You will have an opportunity to swim in the Dead Sea, the only waters in the world where it is impossible to drown. And many more places. Our Zeal for Christ Ministry Team will be with you all the way.


We have teamed up with Christian agencies that make it possible for you to experience the holy land to the fullest. We welcome people of all ages and we will do our best to accommodate those with disabilities as well, this may need separate attention depending on the level of disability.

We will hear the word of God being spoken, and we know that “ faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. ”‭‭Romans‬ ‭10:17‬ ‭KJV‬‬


‬ And as we link the sites to the word we have heard we will be strengthened in spirit. We become alive. Jesus said “The Spirit gives life; the flesh counts for nothing. The words I have spoken to you—they are full of the Spirit and life.”‭‭John‬ ‭6:63‬ ‭NIV


‬‬‬‬‬‬How will you be transformed?“The word of God is alive and active, sharper than any double-edged sword. It cuts all the way through, to where soul and spirit meet, to where joints and marrow come together. It judges the desires and thoughts of the heart. ‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭4:12‬ ‭GNT‬


‬‬‬‬‬So behold the holy land not as a tourist but one who is one with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Encounter the Lord Jesus Christ, open your heart to Him and hear His voice, He is not in the tempest or thunder. Be still and know that He is God.

Baptisms in the river Jordan

        Testimonies will be posted here, from those who have gone before you


        “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.”

‭‭Revelation‬ ‭12:11‬ ‭KJV‬‬

Baptisms in the river Jordan

Baptisms in the river Jordan

Baptism in the river Jordan.

 “Then Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan to be baptized by John. But John tried to deter him, saying, “I need to be baptized by you, and do you come to me?” Jesus replied, “Let it be so now; it is proper for us to do this to fulfill all righteousness.” Then John consented. As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him. And a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.””

‭‭Matthew‬ ‭3:13-17‬ ‭NIV‬‬‬‬‬‬


Many people travel the world to be baptised in the river Jordan. If it is your desire to be baptised during the Tour this is also possible and we are happy to do this for you, at the end of your baptism you will receive a certificate. If you have been baptised and still wish to be immersed into the river of Jordan to renew your vowels to the Lord, we would love to do this for you too. Please just indicate when you register for the tour. Baptism is open declaration of identification with the death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ and it is open to all who confess Him as Lord. John the Baptist said “John answered them all, “I baptize you with water. But one who is more powerful than I will come, the straps of whose sandals I am not worthy to untie. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.”

‭‭Luke‬ ‭3:16‬ ‭NIV‬‬


REFLECTION

Baptisms in the river Jordan

REFLECTION

image180

We make time during the tours to sit down and read the word of God, reflect on each site and ask what is the Lord is saying to each of us and reflect on what miracles were performed there, we take time to pray for ourselves and for each other.  


 At the garden tomb for instance we have time to sit down and have communion at the very site that our Lord Jesus was raised to  life and defeated death. We have time to reflect in Gethsemane at the Church of all Nations, how we ought to be like Jesus who prayed and said““Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done.””

‭‭Luke‬ ‭22:42‬ ‭NIV‬‬

For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters. And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified.”

Well. What can I say, but 'PHENOMENAL!!!' I had been to Israel earlier in the year but this trip was totally different. It exceeded all of my expectations. Firstly,  the calibre of people,  the love displayed,  the Kingdom dynamics. It was like being with family members. Morshi and Morad were like brothers amongst 12 sisters and a treasured baby boy. We couldn't have asked to be better cared for, considered,  informed. They gave and kept giving, in excellent character: patience, kindness, seeing to our needs and desires, including ice creams when necessary 😊. They didn't complain once but went out of their way to accommodate us. We can absolutely declare them 'a cut above the rest'.

I can personally say this trip will be stored in my memory as one of the best of my lifetime. (And I am a seasoned traveller). I don't know whether I want to go back to Israel if it's going to be without them (and the 12 apostles & the Bishop). It wouldn't be the same. This is a hard act to follow. I want to reiterate, I love you all. Although I didn't get to say 'Mazal U'Bracha' this time, I feel enriched and hold you all as the diamonds stored in my heart. Love you all to the max. Missing you too. 😘💕 Shalom. Elaine ❤

 I would like to thank Morsi and Morad for making this an unforgettable trip to Israel for me. This was my fourth visit but the knowledge and understanding I gained  from this trip was far beyond what I expected. Morsi, your love and passion for your country and your knowledge was a great blessing to me. Thank you for helping me when I was running out of steam and always encouraging me to go a little bit further. Thank you for the way you cared for us all and how you understood each of us individually. Morad you are an exceptional driver and always made sure that we were  dropped off as close to the places we were visiting.  You endeared yourself to everyone of us and always looking out for us to help in any way that you could. I could not have asked for a better driver or guide and would highly recommend you both to anyone. May God Bless you both and your families and look forward to touringbeith you again. Carol

Arriving in Tel Aviv was a dream come true. I was home, I had walked into my father's open arms. It was going to be okay.


Walking throughout the different places ,each new day was a day for Holy Spirit to deliver me from old bad habits. Fear of flying, fear of mixing with others because of past hurts, fear of water, boats, what people would think or say about me plus more.


 So many areas were dealt with. I was constantly aware of his presence, I did not have to compare myself to any one else. God made the little I had to stretch and He blessed me with a bit more. I never lacked for anything, even able to purchase gifts. Being re baptised in the Jordan, was the icing on the cake my heart had desired this for so many years.


God blessed me with a wonderful roommate Elaine, we joked and laughed a lot. God has restored my joy, my self worth and belief that I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me after years of being beaten down.

I am looking forward to growing in Zeal for Christ Ministries and also building up the ministry that God has given me.


I made new friends in Israel and hopefully will be able to maintain them here in U.K. I loved our tour guide Morsi and driver Morad. I am Looking forward to next year in Israel hallelujah!

I would personally like to say thank you Morsi, because you went over and above your call of duty, you and Morad made a fantastic team and treated us with such grace and patience. Morsi your knowledge of places and events was excellent. You were able to call each of us by name and that is really awesome and it says a lot about who you are. 


You took care of each us and made us feel like the individuals that we were. We were blessed to know a little bit about you and your families.  It was a great privilege for me to team up with you a man of valour and great integrity and to also learn about your culture and country.


Thank you so much for everything, every teaching and every kind word you spoke. Morsi and Morad you made a exceptional team and May you and your families blessed in Jesus name.
