Overview

Beyond Measure

In Genesis 41 during the 7 years of plenty, grain was so abundant it could no longer be counted.  It was “beyond measure.”  I want to personally invite you on this trip to the Holy Land.  The blessings will be “beyond measure”.  We will visit the birthplace of Jesus, the Garden Tomb, the Western Wall, walk the Holy City, visit Petra (one of the 7 Wonders of the World), spend time on the Sea of Galilee, float in the Dead Sea, meet refugees from Syria and Iraq and do ministry through two churches.  It will be life-changing!

Blessings,

Pastor. Larry Light
