To walk in the footsteps where Jesus once walked, to read the scripture in the location where God once physically breathed out, and to witness firsthand the complicated beauty of the Holy Land was beyond a blessing and something I can’t fully put into words. Thinking back to my trip, I am reminded of the Lord’s faithfulness to His people and the hope that He offers in contrast to a grim reality. This trip has grown my faith, given me lifelong friendships, and left me with experiences that will last a lifetime of impact and reflection. The Lord truly exceeded my expectations in so many different ways and has left me eager to go back again.”

– Kathy Tran, B.S. Clinical Neuroscience, ’22

“My 10-day experience in Israel with Passages was truly one of the best journeys of my life. Passages was well organized and equipped with leaders, tour guides, and speakers that gave us a spiritual and educational outlook on the Holy Land. I left Israel with a new perspective not only on life and the gospel but also a new perspective on the complex political and social climate of Israel, Palestine and the Middle East. I would encourage any student who is capable to partake in this experience.”

– Jake DiCarlo, B.S. Construction Engineering and Management, ’22
