Creation/evolution Israel

Last chance: Biblical creationist tour of Israel

LAST CHANCE to join us! Only 4 months to go! To the start of the first ever biblical creationist archeological tour of Israel, to my knowledge anyway.

I have organised a small group of biblical creationist believers to tour Israel between May 20th and 31st this year (2016). It will be led by Dr D. Russ Humphreys (cosmologist, biblical creationist from the US) and myself. Apart from 12 days being guided by experts, with PhD’s in Israeli archeology, on Israel’s biblically relevant sites,  Dr Humphreys and I will speak to congregations of Messianic believers, and we have been invited to speak at believers youth and student conferences. Dr Humphreys and myself will also speak at a secular university it seems. Sounds like a blast. Much of the creationist teaching ministry will occur in the evenings and the tour of sites during the day.

DSCF1598Why don’t you join us? Tour cost is less than $1600 USD for most everything excluding airfares. If more join the price drops per person. The tour company is owned and operated by a biblical creationist family. Hotel rooms will be on a shared basis, or where you are a couple you have your own. So far we have 12 plus Dr Humphreys and myself, totaling 14 people. Why not join us? Dr John Baumgardner is also considering joining us. Please pray he does.

This offer to join us is open only to biblical creationist Christian believers. If you are interested add a comment below in the comment section with your email address, and I’ll get back to you.
