Israel

Visit the Holy Land

Our annual trip to Israel is an essential (and popular!) component of Mile Two, and this year we’re inviting alumni and friends of Providence to share the experience with us! Cameron McKenzie, Academic Dean of Providence University College, will be joining us as we boat on the Sea of Galilee where Jesus and Peter walked on the water, as we visit the remains of the temple where Jesus drove out the money-changers and as we ponder the Garden of Gethsemane where Jesus prayed prior to his capture.

Mile Two students and fellow travellers will gain a new perspective on the Bible as they experience the land and the culture with all their senses. Scripture will come alive in a new way. We’ll see the Bible in colour!

Of course, this is not purely a sight-seeing trip. We also take opportunities to engage in practical service to the people of the land. We want to serve the marginalized people of Israel, to hear their stories and to gain a better understanding of the pursuit of peace in this special place.

Did you Know?

This past year, Mile Two students walked the Via Dolorosa in Jerusalem, rode on a boat in the Sea of Galilee, floated in the Dead Sea, visited the ruins of Bet She’an, and explored various holy sites throughout the Holy Land, including the birthplace of Jesus!
