Erin Bennett Tours the Holy Land with Pearce Church

Erin Bennett (pictured here in front of the Dead Sea) participated in Pearce Church’s 12-day Israel/Jordan Trip from February 18th to March 1st. The trip included sites such as the Wilderness where the Israelites wandered for forty years, the place where David battled Goliath, the Jordan River where Jesus was baptized, the Sea of Galilee, the city of Jerusalem, and much more. Erin made the decision to go about a year and a half ago when the announcement for the trip was made. She knew it would be a trip of a lifetime and it was that and more. Her favorite moments included taking a boat ride on the Sea of Galilee, walking the streets of Jerusalem, contemplating Christ’s sacrifice at the Garden of Gethsemane, and having communion in the Garden Tomb. She is still taking time to process everything she saw and learned, and will continue to do so for many years to come. She is already dreaming of the next trip to Israel.
