Israel Study Trips
Dear Gulf Atlantic Diocesan family,

Marcia and I are frequently asked when we will lead a "regular" Shoresh tour to Israel. At this point we are leading tours exclusively for leadership.

However we are happy to let you know that our Archbishop Foley Beach will be leading a tour from May 30 to June 11, 2015, and it is open to all. ++Foley is a good friend, and he made his first trip to Israel with Marcia many years ago.

Take a look at the attached brochure and give it prayerful consideration. It will be a life-changing experience with a great group!

In the Messiah Jesus,

+Neil
