Only today was the FAA suspension of U.S. flights into Tel Aviv lifted. Until then no U.S. planes were permitted to fly there. Our Tekton Ministries Holy Land Catholic pilgrimage from Indiana was the second to last American plane to land, as you may have read in a press release we also published on our blog. The good news about our pilgrimage group is that they are safe and sound and enjoying their pilgrimage. Yesterday they took in beautiful views of the Mediterranean Sea from Haifa and now have completed their first full day in the Galilee are, otherwise know as Tiberias.
Local news stations in the Indianapolis and Fort Wayne area, however, have taken interest in our story. Below is a sample broadcast from one of those stations. We are grateful for their interest and support and for the great work they do.
