Dear Brothers and Sisters, For many centuries, Groups have traveled to the Holy Land to visit the sites where Jesus was born and lived, taught and healed. For millennia, Tourists have yearned to encounter the places of his suffering, death, and resurrection, and also to visit the places where the first believers received the Holy Spirit, where the apostles preached and healed.
