In February of 2009 I went on a pilgrimage to walk in the footsteps of Jesus and that trip changed my live. The reality of sacred sites in the Bible became my own personal reality. I was compelled to make this far more than a travel memory. I want to bring information about Christians in the Holy Land and make available beautiful olive wood art to help the Christian artists feed their families.

Taking my pilgrimage to the Holy Land and Egypt was a decision that changed my life.

Although I had been a Christian all my live, this trip impacted me in new and vital ways. I stood at Mt. Sinai. I traveled the route of the Holy Families "Flight into Egypt". In a fishing boat on the Sea of Galilee, I like the disciples, seemed to witness the miracles of Jesus walking on water.
