Invitation

Dear Friends!

Greetings from Joyful Noise!  It is our privilege to announce to you an amazing opportunity that will deepen your knowledge and understanding of the Word of God and strengthen your faith in Him. We would like to extend an invitation to you to travel with us to the Holy Land of Israel. For more than two thousand years Christians have been making such a pilgrimage to the Holy Land. We can attest to the fact that this is a trip of a lifetime, one that you will not want to miss. It is life-changing. The Bible itself comes alive, like you’ve never read it before. Your spirit will be rekindled and refreshed.

On this 10-day trip, we will visit the places you have only imagined as you’ve read and heard… Jerusalem, Galilee, the Jordan River (where you can get baptized in the same river John Baptized Jesus!), Mt. Carmel, the Dead Sea (yes, you can float in it! Paula will show you how!) Bethlehem, the Mount of Olives, the Garden of Gethsemane, Calvary, the Garden Tomb, the Wailing Wall, Masada, Jericho, the Temple Mount. We will take a quiet boat ride together on the Sea of Galilee and eat the same type of fish Jesus and the disciples ate from the sea – and several other sites that will grip your heart and remain forever in your memory. The trip is expertly planned, and we will be traveling in a relatively small group that will stay together at all sites where expert historians will share extensive information with our group. All other trips and tours will pale in comparison.

We will enjoy devotions, study, sing and worship together. We will all stay at the same first class hotels and enjoy excellent meals with many options to choose from. This tour of a lifetime at the special pricing below includes all transportation from the Charlotte airport to all of our destinations, tickets for all included sites, museums and attractions, all tips and fees, all breakfast and dinner all you can eat buffet meals (we will stop for quick lunches as we travel from site to site) and much more. We will travel together as a group by motor coach once we arrive in Tel Aviv, Israel. We will have adequate time for shopping and exploring as well as visiting the holy sites. Traveling in a group this size (approximately 25 persons) is the safest way to travel. This is not a trip you want to put off until a very old age. This is a trip you want to take when you will be able to commit all the wonderful sites to memory. This trip is designed to be stress free, with all things carefully considered and planned well in advance, so that you can relax and be transported

Friends, this is not a cheap vacation, but when you consider all the places we will be visiting in one trip and having dedicated English-speaking guides to help us every step of the way, you will see that it is truly the trip of a lifetime, and we would love to share it with you! To walk where Jesus walked, and read and study the accompanying scripture from His Word… Well Glory!

If any part of this announcement speaks to your heart, we ask that you pray and ask God to guide you in this decision. We are attaching more detailed and pricing information. The trip is scheduled for November 2-11, 2020, an absolutely wonderful time of year when the weather is sunny, warm and dry. Charlene and Paula can give you great packing trips and helpful hints to make your trip planning easy. You will need a passport, and you have plenty of time to obtain one. So get a 2020 vision of being serious about who we are as Christians, and let us look to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Psalm 121: My help cometh from the LORD, which made Heaven and earth…Behold he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep. The LORD is thy keeper: The LORD shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul; The LORD shall preserve the going out and thy coming from this time forth, and even for evermore.

Prayerfully, we are Joyful Noise

Itinerary

Day 01 · MON. NOV. 02 · DEPARTURE
Today we depart Charlotte for our flight to Tel Aviv, Israel, with a connection in Munich.

Day 02 · TUE. NOV. 03 · ARRIVE TEL AVIV · NETANYA
We arrive in the Holy Land late this afternoon where we are met by our Wilcox Tours agent and guide. Enjoy a scenic drive through Jaffa, the oldest port in the world. From here Jonah set sail for Tarshish, but he was swallowed by a whale. Jaffa was also the home of Tabitha who was raised from the dead by Peter. And, while lodging in the home of Simon the Tanner, Peter has his vision. Transfer to Tel Aviv where we’ll have one overnight at our hotel overlooking the Mediterranean Sea.

Day 03 · WED. NOV. 04 · MEGIDDO · NAZARETH · TIBERIAS
Today we proceed northward to Caesarea Maritima from where the Apostle Paul sailed to Rome. Extensive ruins of the Roman aqueduct and amphitheater built by King Herod remain, including the sunken harbor and the hippodrome. We then drive to Mt. Carmel, with a panoramic view of the Plain of Jezreel (I Kings 18 – the confrontation between Elijah and the prophets of Baal). We continue to Megiddo for the background to Armageddon (Revelations 16); more than 5,000 years old and once used by Solomon as an important chariot city. Journey through the Jezreel Valley to Nazareth, Jesus’ boyhood home, where we see the Grotto of the Annunciation and Nazareth Baptist Church. In Cana, Jesus performed His first miracle by turning water into wine. Then we cross over to the Arbel cliff for a magnificent view over the Sea of Galilee and the sites of Jesus’ mission (Matthew 4). We continue to our hotel in Tiberias for dinner and the next two overnights.

Day 04 · THU. NOV. 05 · UPPER GALILEE · TIBERIAS
This morning we take a boat ride on the Sea of Galilee to Capernaum, pausing en route for a special service. The ancient synagogue and St. Peter’s house still stands in Capernaum. Bethsaida Archaeological Park has been under excavation since 1987, and is now open! This ancient fishing village was home to the Apostles Phillip, Simon and Andrew. We’ll see authentic first century homes and streets that have not been built over in the past two thousand years, but miraculously preserved from the days of Jesus’ ministry! Marvel at the view of Galilee from the Mount of Beatitudes, site of the Sermon on the Mount. Next we go to Tabgha, the traditional site of the Feeding of the Five Thousand. After a St. Peter’s fish lunch we continue through the Hula Valley (part of the Great Rift Valley) to Hazor. Drive to Dan and Banias Springs at the foot of Mount Hermon. Here at Banias is Caesarea Philippi, where Peter made his great confession of faith. We will have a special baptismal service at the Jordan River. If you wish to be baptized or reaffirm your faith again by baptism, plan to join this ceremony.

Day 05 · FRI. NOV. 06 · JERUSALEM
Among Israel’s most impressive ruins are those found in Beit She’an. Excavators have discovered 18 successive towns featuring black and white stones, marble columns, mosaics, and a 6,000 seat. Byzantine amphitheater. Journey further south to the oldest city in the world, Jericho, settled in 9,000 BC. It is also the lowest, at 820’ below sea level. This was the first city conquered by the Israelites in the Promised Land, under Joshua’s command. View the Mt. of Temptation where Jesus was led into the wilderness and tempted by the devil, after His baptism. Continue through the deep and picturesque gorge of Wadi Kelt to Jerusalem, the city of David. The next five nights in Jerusalem!

Day 06 · SAT. NOV. 07 · MASADA · JERUSALEM
Early this morning we drive through Ein Gedi to visit the fortress Masada, rising 1,200 feet above the desert plain. See the restoration efforts of remains of buildings dating back to the fourth and fifth centuries AD.
Afterward, those who wish may enjoy a “float” in the Dead Sea. View Qumran where the Dead Sea Scrolls were found by a Bedouin shepherd in 1948, before visiting the Shrine of the Book, displaying the scroll of Isaiah. This evening, a shopping extravaganza

Day 07 · SUN. NOV. 08 · BETHLEHEM · JERUSALEM
Ephrath – meaning fertility, is now known as Bethlehem, the birthplace of Jesus. In the Church of the Nativity we see a stone manger, where it is believed Jesus was born. This site next to the inn was where the animals were kept and fed. Continue to Shepherds’ Field where an angel appeared before the shepherds to tell them of the birth of Christ. In Mt. Zion we visit the Coenaculum – Room of the Last Supper, and Tomb of David; the Church of St. Peter in Galicantu, where Peter denied Christ three times before the cock crowed – also known as the House of Caiaphas, where Jesus was brought after his arrest. In the Valley of Kidron we see the Pool of Siloam where Jesus healed a blind man.

Day 08 · MON. NOV. 09 · JERUSALEM · THE OLD CITY
Deep in the heart of Jerusalem we tour the Jewish Heritage Tunnel (also known as the Western Wall Tunnel) and see the Dome of the Rock Mosque, next to the Wailing Wall. Our walking tour in the Old City of Jerusalem will begin by the Lion’s Gate, at the Church of St. Anne, and the Pool of Bethesda, where Jesus said to the man “Take up thy bed and walk.” Along the Via Dolorosa – “Sorrowful Road,” we see the stations connected with Jesus’ crucifixion. The Church of the Holy Sepulchre represents the final station where He was crucified

Day 09 · TUE. NOV. 10 · JERUSALEM
The Holyland Model affords us the opportunity to envision what Jerusalem might have looked like during the reign of King Herod. This magnificent work of art is continually being updated as new archaeological discoveries are being made. On the Mount of Olives we visit the Paternoster Church, where the Lord’s Prayer is written in 35 languages, Church of Ascension, Tomb of the Virgin Mary, Garden of Gethsemane, and the Church of All Nations. Enjoy a breathtaking panorama of old and new Jerusalem. A special service will be held at the Garden Tomb. This afternoon is at your leisure. This evening we’ll enjoy a farewell dinner for our final night.

Day 10 · WED. NOV. 11 · JERUSALEM · TEL AVIV · U.S.A
Early this morning we drive to the Tel Aviv airport for check in for our flight home, arriving back in the USA the same day.
