Going to the Holy Land and walking in the steps of the Lord is a one-time experience never to be forgotten. As a resident of Nazareth in Galilee, I will show you first-hand the footsteps of Christ: from where it all began in Bethlehem, through Nazareth and His ministry in Galilee up to that fateful week in Jerusalem and after. You will go to those “extra” places that the tour buses don’t.
