After More than a Year, The Holy Land Welcomes Tourists Again!

A small group of theology students from the Midwest received a special welcome as they landed at Ben Gurion Airport in Israel late last week. They were the first group of tourists since Israel closed its borders last year due to COVID-19. More groups are expected to arrive in the coming weeks as the Holy Land opens for tourism once again.

The group of about a dozen students from Prince of Peace Church in Missouri received a personal escort from Israel's Tourism Minister through immigrations and the mandated protocol of coronavirus testing for international travelers.
