Our trips are very single-friendly as well.  Pentecost Tours will make an
effort to pair single travelers looking for roommates.

We'll renew our Baptismal Promises at the Jordan River, where Jesus was
Baptized by John.  We'll renew our marriage vows and pray for any deceased
husbands and wives at Cana in Galilee where Jesus attended a wedding with
his Mother and turned water into wine.  We'll take a boat ride on the Sea of
Galilee.  We'll even have a chance to visit Masada and to swim in the Dead
Sea. We'll visit the Holocaust Museum in Jerusalem too, and see the Dead Sea
Scrolls.  You'll never read Scripture in the same way after this wonderful

In this weekend's Scriptures we hear a great deal about John the Baptist.
He is the one who Baptized Jesus in the Jordan River.  We'll visit that holy
River and so many other holy sites.  We'll renew our own Baptism Vows in the
same river where John baptized Jesus himself!

"O LORD, you are our Father; we are the clay, and you are our potter; we are
all the work of your hand."  ~Isaiah 64:8

We can expect miracles of change in people's lives.  We need not be held
back by unbelief.  People can be changed and they are often ready and
waiting to be changed.  We need never believe that human nature cannot be
changed.  We can see changed people every day.  Do we have the faith to make
those changes possible?  Modern miracles happen every day in the lives of
people.  Miracles are often in the realm of personalities.  Human nature can
be changed and is always being changed.  We can have enough faith so that we
can be channels for God's strength into the lives of others.

I pray that I may have the faith to expect miracles.  I pray that I may be
used by God to help change the lives of others.
