Father Jeff in the Holy Land

Fr. Jeff is such a blessing to us here and so enthusiastic, it is such a great joy to know him. He has been a great encouragement and inspiration to me in respect of his incredibly courageous journey home to Rome. Now, in his own words
"Becoming a Catholic has opened so many new doors and so now just humbly thanking God!"It sounds like the trip was amazing, and deeply emotional for Jeff, as he was able to do so many things he would not have been able to do before he entered fully into communion with the Church. The wonder of visiting the places we read about in the Gospels was greatly enhanced by travelling with Scott and Kimberly, who added there unceasing enthusiasm, great depth of knowledge, and love, to the whole trip. It really does sound like it was unforgettable.
Father Jeff was in touch during his trip and was keeping his parishioners updated. He brought me back an amazing gift—prayers said for Ruth in the Holy Sepulchre itself, and a message from Scott, who is one of my great heroes!

|An amazing gift from Israel!|
I'm going to tuck this away safely in my Bible now!
