"I am missing Israel so very much. It felt like going home to me. The whole trip became a beautiful fulfillment of the dream of a lifetime. What a great blessing it already is for me and my family. Now I wake up singing "Oh, Galilee" almost everyday."
"We are still processing all we saw, learned and felt. Life goes on and on and on. And yet at night (when we can't sleep) we talk about each experience we had in Israel. Our goal now is to get each of our children and their spouses to Israel. We may have to sell the house! Thanks for changing our lives forever. Thanks for your preparation, insights, comments and your lives. You will forever be a part of us."
"I am missing that warm Israeli sun, and those beautiful breezes and the greetings of "welcome!" ringing in my ears (not to mention the muezzin) and, most of all, the wonderful, sweet spirit that I always feel when I am in Israel. We are more aware of events there and do more fervently "Pray For the Peace of Jerusalem" and indeed the wonderful, sweet people and the whole country."
"[We] returned a week and a half ago from an amazing trip to Israel. It impossible to sum it up here in one blog post and to post our over 1300 pictures (thank goodness for digital cameras!). So it will have to suffice for me to say I LOVE this land. There is an incredible spirit there and it is such a part of my life. In a strange way I feel I am at home when I travel there. My testimony has been renewed and once again I am able to see the gospel in a new light. I am grateful beyond words to have been able to travel there with the love of my life...I already long to go back and pray that someday that will happen!
“Brother Godfrey was terrific--very knowledgeable. He and Asher were very flexible in modifying the tour as we went along to do the most at the right time. Our Israeli guide Asher was absolutely the best imaginable. Our girls really enjoyed the tour--it was really life changing in many ways. They all have said it is was the best family vacation they ever went on....and we have been on some great ones.” - The Perry Christensen Family
“It has been far beyond our expectation! Thanks for a life-changing wonderful experience!" - Lou & Lois Falck

“Our favorite times were the 'teaching moments' at all the sites along the way." - Ron & Judy
“This is just a note to thank you for leading us on the trip of our lifetime. We are telling everyone that asks about our trip that they should plan on going. We appreciate the friends we made and hope to keep in contact at least with some." - Lou & Lois Falck
"This tour was amazing and our first. It was exciting to see and feel the many events that have occurred in the Holy Land. It makes reading the scriptures come alive. We really appreciated the outstanding historical and scriptural explanations delivered with such passion. One event that was very inspirational was standing in Shepherd’s Field at night with the city lights and stars glowing as we sang “Silent Night.” - Martin & Neils Ludlow
"Thank you for an amazing experience. It exceeded our very high expectations and we can hardly believe it is over. While the trip is over, the impact is not. We are changed and it is largely due to your great knowledge, teaching and spirit. There is no way we can adequately thank you." - Jim and Susan Nuckols
"I really appreciated the good balance of historical, cultural, and religious information that our guide and director provided. They had a fantastic relationship and supplemented each other’s material. I appreciated the thoughtful insights provided by the director, the pace of the tour, and the huge amount of sites we were able to visit. We had a wonderful experience." - Jerry and Tammy Naylor
"Brother Judd was very kind, patient, inspiring and knowledgeable…. It was a special treat to be able to sing [“He is Risen”] at the Garden Tomb and to be able to walk over to the empty sepulcher and know in your heart that Christ had power over death and gives that gift to us all.”
“Our trip has been filled with many wonderful experiences. Brother Brickey was more than we expected. He went the extra mile (more like a thousand extra miles) many times. His wit and wisdom were great. The tour guides were awesome! Everything was perfect.”
“The opportunity to explore the Holy Lands with Dr. Griggs has been amazing. I would be impossible to duplicate his level of knowledge and his ability to share knowledge. We also enjoyed our day exploring Petra.”
“Not once but many times, Bro. Glazier opened our eyes to the valuable spiritual angles so we all may have a better vision of the pre-Incan cultures and things of truths that can only have been given to those people by our Savior and other visits that we do not know yet. The common symbolism share by our doctrines and their beliefs is awesome. Bro. Glazier did an excellent job of pointing them out to us.”
“I enjoyed everywhere we went and every wonderful beautiful thing we did, The group made this a wonderful life experience for me. I love and appreciate Michael Phillips for his patience, love and understanding. The guides were wonderful.”
“The whole experience to Turkey & Greece was incredible! Bro. Terry Call was an excellent director. This has been a life changing experience. Thank you!”
BOOK OF MORMON:
“I feel John Claybaugh’s personal knowledge, organized notes and insightful comments on each sight were wonderful. We were able to place a Book of Mormon with 3 guides. They wanted to read the book “that all the Mormon Tourists” were coming to visit. We enjoyed the howler monkeys and crocodiles that added intrigue on the fun Rio boat trip”.
Before we even got home, we were talking about sending you a big THANK YOU! We really enjoyed the tour and look forward to when we can go again. Everyone one the tour was so nice and we never had any concerns for safety or comfort.We can see why you tell people to study up and be prepared. Again, we both personally thank you for the extra attention to detail and making our first tour, so wonderfully pleasant.
-Charlie And Shirley Tate
“I enjoyed feeling the spirit of Nauvoo and learning about Church History from Susan Easton Black. I enjoyed the association of wonderful people willing to share their inspirational stories and testimonies.”
“ John Beck’s ability to tell us so many detailed experiences of Joseph Smith and other great church leaders made them really come alive for each of us. My testimony was greatly increased by learning and being in those places where the saints lived.. . .”
"Dear Morris Murdock Escorted Tours,
We wanted to thank you again for the fantastic time we had in South Bend. It made one of our top ten events we have experienced in our life time. The Notre Dame campus and the wonderful people we met made it a trip of a lifetime."
