7 Churches Tour and Team May 19-29, 2014
Join us May 19-29, 2014 for our third Team/trip to Turkey. We will tour the 7 churches of Revelation 2-3 while impacting the culture. This year we are adding Nicea and Troy. Local cost of $1,300 includes tourist visa, all local housing, transportation and food. Airfare from Mobile to Istanbul is currently $1.250. So total expenses are $2,550. Let Bro. Thomas know of your interest. A $1,250 deposit is due by January 15, 2014 (when we purchase tickets). Final payment of $1,300 is due by April 1, 2014. It is rewarding to share as we go. It is incredible to walk the actual streets in Ephesus where Paul and John worked and Luke practiced medicine. This would be a great gift for your pastor and other staff.
