November was an extremely busy month with groups arriving from all over to experience their own pilgrimage of the Holy Land.
One of our groups consisted of 120 pilgrims from all over Africa who came with Benie TV: Most of the group were from the Ivory Coast with participants also coming from Burkina Faso, Chad, Benin, Cameroon, Angola and Congo. The group travelled around in 3 buses, touring the holy sites throughout the country including Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Yardenit, Capernaum, and a boat ride on the Sea of Galilee where they enjoyed some time for prayer and worship.
We were thrilled at the end of the month to welcome Group IST and more than 1000 pilgrims on the “Winter Movement to the Holy Land" pilgrimage from the USA. More than 1000 pilgrims arrived on the “Winter Movement to the Holy Land" pilgrimage.
Amongst the special events during their time here was when they all gathered together at the Jesus Boat Museum in Kibbutz Ginosar, on the shore of the Sea of Galilee, for a prayer for peace in the world.
December is almost upon us and winter has arrived. We are preparing for our groups arriving next month to celebrate Christmas in the Holy Land and, if we are lucky, we may get some snow and have a white Christmas.
