Upcoming Tours

10-Israel-Flag-Unfurled1

Hello Everyone,

Mount Zion Ministries will be offering the following Tours to Israel during the month of November 2015, on an annual basis.

We’ll be offering the choice of 3 tours – 2 x Tours of 10 days each, and 1 x Tour of 14 days.

The Tour dates include the date of arrival and the date of departure.  The central location for the duration of the tours will be in Jerusalem.  Tour programs will be issued at a later stage.

Only 8 people will be allowed on each tour, tour guides included, due to the fact that we want to keep these tours intimate and personal, and give all the tour members the opportunity to benefit optimally.  Each Tour is a spiritual journey and we go as the Spirit leads us.  We’ll start every day with communion and worship, Hephzibah will personally serve each group, else the tour leader will take the lead.  After Breakfast, we’ll depart to visit and explore the rich spiritual heritage of Israel.  Our Tours are leisurely, we want to ensure that everybody has a fair chance to receive what the Spirit would like to share with each person.  Breakfast is large and satisfying, and hunger only returns at dinner time.  Often we just buy some fresh fruit for lunch along the way, as we snack throughout the day, which is why lunch is not included in the price package.  Coffee, drinks and snacks are also not included in the Tour packages.

Evenings are spent at home where we share dinner and everybody will then have the opportunity to share their experiences of the day and what they received spiritually. Hephzibah may also serve us at this time.  In order to allow the Spirit to flow freely, we avoid following a specific routine or set plan, we follow the prompting of the Spirit and enjoy every moment as it comes along.

An experience like no other, a proper Shabbat meal with Messianic Jews, is included in each Tour.  Often other people from around the world attend the Shabbat meal.  During our last Tour we were fortunate enough to share it with 5 women from Norway.

All Namibian passport holders, must obtain VISAS.  Tour packages do NOT include VISA APPLICATIONS.  These costs and the process of applying for VISAS, is everyone’s own responsibility.

We will however gladly provide information relating to VISAS.

MZM will not be held responsible for unexpected circumstances i.e embassy strikes, airline changes etc.  We will however do everything in our power to eliminate and prevent any discomfort.  Our Tour groups will also comprise people that we know and who have made the spiritual journey with us.  The Tour members are responsible for ensuring that their passports are current, are in order and that their passports expire no less than six months after the planned dates of return.  Flight insurance is required by each Tour member, it is not included in the packages.  Each Tour member is responsible for their own flight insurance.  People who pay with credit cards, already have flight insurance included as a benefit.

A travel contract will also be concluded.
