Daniel Carmel, owner of the "Worship Boats", casts a net on the Sea of Galilee, just as Peter, Andrew, James or John would have done, 2,000 years ago! He didn't catch anything on the first try either!
Welcome to YourPaths.net! Last March, 17 people walked with us where Jesus walked, experiencing the unique land of Israel. Unique? Israel certainly is - and in some surprising ways too. Just for example, during winter months, one can swim in the Red Sea at Israel's southern border) then drive 300 miles to the northern border and snow ski at Mt. Hermon (a 7,200 foot mountain). While the weather from May-October is very predictable (warm and dry, with no chance of rain), winter months (November - February) are more interesting. It does snow in Israel on occasion. I've seen snow in Jerusalem three times and it's usually very light. (Jerusalem gets heavy snowfall only about once in 7 years.) The Bible does mention snow several times: "Come now, let us reason together, says the Lord: though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall become like wool." (Isaiah 1:18), "He spreads the snow like wool..." (Psalm 147:16), The Proverbs 31 woman "...is not afraid of snow for her household, for all her household are clothed in scarlet." (Proverbs 31:21). The angel that sat on the rolling stone of Jesus' empty tomb appeared "...like lightning and his clothes were white as snow." (Matthew 28:3) So the next time you see a news report about snowfall in Israel, don't be surprised and don't believe it's some kind of imagined "global warning indicator." Snow does fall in Israel just as it has for a very long time! We've even been stuck in a traffic jam caused by snow on the way to the airport! (They did hold the plane for us. The airline wasn't going to leave 50 passengers behind!!) If you've ever thought about visiting the "unique" Land of the Bible someday, we invite you to watch the videos and spend some time here at our site. Marilyn and I would love to have you join us in 2017 to visit the amazing places where our faith began! You probably won't see snow, but now you know, it really is possible!

For a Christian, visiting the land where our faith was born is truly the ULTIMATE FIELD TRIP! Last March, one of our travelers said "David, this is the best trip - it was worth the money already." That was only the fourth day! Another passenger (a physician) on our way home from a previous Israel tour told me ,"This was the best trip I have ever taken!!" A well-traveled professional couple emailed me just recently... "Our trip to Israel with you remains the highlight of our retirement."
Visiting Israel in a well-planned tour is an amazing experience. It is a life-changing spiritual journey - "You'll never be the same!" We invite you to join us on our next trip!

Captain Daniel Carmel, owner of the "Worship Boats" expertly casts a a net on the Sea of Galilee, just as Peter, Andrew, James and John would've done 2,000 years ago! As you can see, it was a beautiful cast, but like Jesus' disciples, he didn't catch anything the first try either. Maybe on the other side of the boat Daniel?
