The Isaacs enjoying Amsterdam today.....

We're in downtown Amsterdam. Beautiful sunny day. Everyone has rented bikes to ride around town. They are having so much fun. I'm in a predicament. So growing up in NYC I never owned a bike so I didn't learn how to ride one!! And I don't think it's smart to learn today on a busy street in the city. So I'm sitting at this beautiful Chinese restaurant on the water eating lunch n just enjoying an hour of relaxation. While the the family and group are working off all the calories we've eating this trip. I'm getting fatter!!!!
Love, Lily

The Isaacs Tour in Ireland and the Netherlands

The Isaacs are having a great time touring in Ireland and the Netherlands this week.  They've shared some great pictures of their time there.  Today they flew to Amsterdam and toured the
Ten Boom House.  Lily writes.......
Caught an early flight to Amsterdam today and went to Haarlem to the Corey Ten Boom house. What an experience! If you've never read The Hiding Place, you MUST. This is the most amazing story of survival and forgiveness I have ever heard told. The original structure of the Store/house is the same. Some of the furniture and precious treasures are still intact and displayed here. We relived this family's story and walked thru the steps of their routine in hiding Jews. They would have as many as 10-12 people there at one time. The people that were in this closet had 70 seconds to run up 3 flights of stairs and take all their belongings with them to hide in this closet. If they were found they would be immediately killed. 6 people were cramped in this small space for 2 and 1/2 days. Wow! The streets in this town are so old and beautiful. The town square looks like it comes out of a story book! I stood there and imagined what it would have been like here 70 years ago! What a day. I'm truly blessed. We start with our series of 3 concerts tomorrow then home Monday. Keep praying for us. We've had fantastic services. It's been a wonderful trip so far!!!

A personal invitation from The Isaacs.........Join us on our trip to Israel

Dear Friends, 

We, The Isaacs, want to personally invite you on a trip we are taking this summer.. a trip to the Holy Land!  Many of you whom we have had the pleasure of meeting over the years have expressed interest in a trip such as this, so we wanted to make you aware of it!  We want to especially reach out to those of you who are serving in ministry, whether it be as a pastor, evangelist, music minister, promoter, or any of the many jobs we are called to do for the Lord.  If you have never been to the Israel, then you couldn't possibly imagine how much being in this Sacred Land, the place where our entire faith was born, will revive and grow your spiritual insight and eternally enhance your ministry.  Here are the details, and we are attaching the full brochure for your review. 

* Our trip is June 4-13, 2014.  

* All-inclusive price includes- 3 meals/day, 5 star hotels, Flights to and from JFK in NYC, All tips, taxes, site entry fees, tour guides, and anything else that would otherwise cost you. No hidden charges.

* Host- Inspiration Tours (1st class in touring, taking thousands to Israel every year!) & The Isaacs (we have been 11 times!)

* Total number passengers- Goal of 100, capacity for 150.  Once our capacity is filled, we cannot take any more, so please act quickly to reserve your spot! 

* Sites we're visiting-  Please see the brochure.  We have specifically tailored this trip to see the most important and enjoyable sites based on popularity and our previous visits.  We will see EVERYTHING we can possibly see in the time given.  You will not be disappointed! Some of our favorite experiences include prayer in The Garden of Gethsemane, a baptismal service in the Jordan River (Pastors, you can baptize your own members if you like), A service in a "Jesus boat" on the Sea of Galilee, worship time in the Garden tomb area and Mt Calvary, a visit to the Holocaust  Memorial and Masada... and many, many more!!!  

* We will be singing and having brief services at several of the Holy Sites. John Bowman (Becky's husband, an ordained minister) will be sharing the Word at select sites.  We try to include our pastors as much as possible in these services, so you will experience what it's like to minister where Jesus himself did.  

* Price- $4098/ person (based on double occupancy- see brochure for details on single rooming or land only pricing). This price is among the lowest you will find for an all-inclusive 10 day trip.  

* Safety concerns- Tourism in Israel has been experiencing higher rates in the last few months than they have in several years and we feel confident that our safety will not be compromised whatsoever. Inspiration Tours will have reps with us at all times and will make sure we are never in danger. 

* Deadlines- We need to know your interest asap as we are holding seats with our airline carrier.  They need an approximate headcount by Feb 14, so if you are considering taking a group from your church, it would help to know that promptly. We will accept reservations until time to leave, but cannot guarantee seating on the same flight as us after their requested deadline. 


We've only planned this trip a few months ago and still have plenty room for you and your guests. If you've ever dreamed of walking on the same soil that once framed our Lord Jesus's footprints, or want to stand in the cool waters of the Jordan River that He, Himself once stood in, then you NEED to go on this trip!   How would you see the Bible differently every time you read about a miracle after having felt God’s presence in that very place? There are no words to describe this unforgettable life-changing opportunity. Preachers, don't you desire to lead your congregation with a new spiritual level of insight that only comes from being there?  We encourage you to bring as many church members as possible to share this time with you, as it will revive them as well.  Please share this trip with them and let us send you some brochures to put in your pamphlet area.  Also, we invite you to tell others you know who may share in our interest of visiting The Holy Land.  Please pray about it and let us know if you're interested as soon as possible, as we are holding seats with the airline and need to be able to confirm a close number next month . We aren't sure if we will be doing any more Israel tours after this one, so if you're interested, don't wait... it's gonna be amazing!!!  Join us for this trip of a lifetime!  

God Bless you and Shalom!
The Isaacs......Lily, Ben, Sonya, Becky and families
