A Letter from Kay Arthur

Dear Friends,

I've had the amazing privilege to lead tours to Israel with Precept Ministries International for nearly 41 years, and I continue to be awed by the powerful combination of hearing God's Word while experiencing its rich history. In our upcoming Israel Study Tour 2016, we will explore the land of the Bible by the opportunity to visit Petra in Jordan on the Israel Tour Extension. Everything on our Israel tour is carefully chosen by our expert team who have decades of experience leading tours in Israel. This is a 12 day tour because it takes this amount of time to really absorb the land and interact with the people.

Come join us. Immerse yourself in the sights and sounds of the Holy Land. Imagine studying the Book of Revelation at Megiddo and seeing the valley of Armageddon where the armies of the world will be gathered together against Jerusalem. Imagine standing on the shores of Galilee, walking the streets of Jerusalem and being in the Garden of Gethsemane. There are so many events and outstanding places you don't want to miss.

My son, David and I will be teaching throughout the Israel tour. Together we'll study the Bible, fellowship, laugh, pray, and worship together. Words are inadequate to describe the experience of touring the precious land of Israel. Nothing can bring the Bible to life like studying in the land where history was written. You will experience an added depth to your faith like never before.

You, my friend, will truly never be the same!
