Lon Solomon's 2016 Best of the Holy Land Tour
October 24 - November 1, 2016
October 31 - November 4, 2016, with Mt. Sinai and Petra extension
The “Best of the Holy Land” tour is a life-changing trip that makes the Bible come alive. During this tour, we will see significant biblical landmarks such as Jerusalem, enjoy the ancient city of Megiddo sitting high above the Valley of Armageddon, step into the Garden of Gethsemane, and sit on the Mount of Olives. We will also get a first-hand look at the Dead Sea Scrolls and other artifacts that demonstrate the veracity of the Bible. Different from other tours, Lon’s “Best of the Holy Land” tour provides you with regular worship, devotions, communion, and prayers led personally by Lon, an opportunity to renew your baptism in the same Jordan River where Jesus was baptized, and deluxe accommodations to provide respite from your busy lives and renewal to your body, mind, and spirit!
Daniel, The Lions, and The End Times (Teaching through the Book of Daniel on Safari in South Africa)
SAVE THESE NEW DATES!!
March 24 - April 1, 2017
April 1 - April 4, 2017, with Victoria Falls/Zimbabwe extension
All my life, I have wanted to go to South Africa and take a safari. And to see Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe, the largest waterfalls in the world, first discovered by the great missionary David Livingstone in 1855. But I don't want to go by myself! I want to take some friends along to enjoy it with me. And so--our very special spring tour for 2017!
I have also had many people ask me about doing a series on the end-times prophecies of the Bible. Of course, these are concentrated in the Books of Revelation, Zechariah, and Daniel. And since the Book of Daniel also has a very prominent chapter dealing with lions--I thought it would be cool to combine this trip to South Africa with a Bible study on the Book of Daniel that I will lead every morning before we leave the hotel for the events of the day. We will cover all 12 chapters during the duration of the tour, bringing in data from the Books of Revelation and Zechariah to deepen our holistic grasp of what the Bible teaches about the Return of the Lord Jesus and the end of the age.
We will also fly to Zimbabwe and stay in the iconic Victoria Falls Hotel, where tons of famous guests have stayed, including the royal family of the UK (King George VI and his family in 1947). And we'll visit the massive waterfalls there, one of the most overwhelming natural wonders of the world.
Finally, I have become more gripped in recent days about the need for us as Christians to have a global outlook and to serve the poor and needy peoples of the world, especially children. In this regard, I am reminded that Daniel and his three friends were all orphans, taken into captivity by the Babylonian king Nebuchadnezzar in 606BC and brought to Babylon without their parents or any relatives that the Bible mentions. As orphans, they were all alone, but the Lord cared for them in a special way, as He loves to do for orphans, for whom He has a special love and concern.
And thus--the March 24 - April 1, 2017 (through April 4 with Victoria Falls extension) tour that we have planned in conjunction with HLP Tours: "Daniel, The Lions, and The End Times."
The plan is not only to study the Book of Daniel each morning, and see real lions like the ones Daniel faced--but also to set aside an entire day on the tour to serve at a local orphanage near Cape Town--so make sure to bring some work clothes!!
I am very excited about this tour and I hope you will be too! As always, we will be working with Ezer Kalmovitcz and HLP Tours in Israel. Anyone who has ever been on a tour with me knows the reputation of HLP Tours for providing the most personalized service, the most wonderful accommodations and food, at the most reasonable prices--and this tour will be no exception!
For the convenience of our passengers, all our long distance travel in Africa is by plane and not bus.
Highlights of the trip include (1) our Bible study in the Book of Daniel throughout the tour; (2) a wonderful day of missionary service to the Lord in helping an orphanage just outside Cape Town; (3) sightseeing in Cape Town for three days, one of the most beautiful cities in the world; (4) our three-day safari in the Kruger National Park; and (5) optional extension trip to the spectacular Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe at the height of its beauty in March.
Because of the nature of this tour, we have a strict limit of 99 passengers right now, a small tour for us (we might be able to get a few more spots if needed, but there's no guarantee!), so I urge you to start praying and planning now so that you can grab one of these spaces!
Of course, as always, HLP tours is offering its "no-interest payment plan"--a benefit that is unmatched by any travel company! And our early deposit discount as usual.
I hope you will pray and think about joining me for what I believe will be a truly memorable trip!
We will post full details here online by the end of the summer, and we will (as always) send a printed brochure to everyone on our mailing list at that time as well.
