#tourisraelwithmark ISRAEL TOUR 2019

Dear Friends

It is with great excitement that I invite you to join me in the Holy Land of Israel in March 2019 for a 'Holy Land' Tour.

A tour of Israel is life-changing for so many reasons - the culture; the history; the geography; the new friends - but none more special than experiencing a new appreciation for the life and ministry of Jesus and seeing the Bible come alive.

Therefore, I invite you to book your place ASAP as seats are limited. Scroll to get an idea of the itinerary and click at the bottom to pre-register.

(Note: The information below points you to the main spots on our journey - there are additional sites of interest that we will be visiting - in fact, over 40 sites will be visited during our time together)

See you in Israel!
