180606 Rob and Margie Forsyth

Journey to Jordan and Israel

26 April–14 May 2019 (Information night 6 June 2018)
Because the great acts of God that are recorded in the Scriptures took place in the real world of human history and geography, there is nothing quite like, at least once in your life, going there and seeing for yourself. Robert and Margie Forsyth would love you to join them on their tour in Jordan and Israel for an experience that will deepen your understanding in a way that mere imagination or pictures or the maps at the back of the bible ever can. The tour organisers, Olive Tree Travel, Melbourne, are a well-respected and highly trusted company. Join Rob and Margie for an informative, entertaining and interesting evening on 6 June to have your questions answered. Sample some delicious Middle Eastern treats as well! 7pm at St Mark's Darling Point Hall, 53 Darling Point Road, Darling Point. More information and contact details [PDF]
