I recently had the privilege of spending two weeks in Israel with a few friends from the United States, and with Todd Horton of Touched by Grace as our leader and teacher.
The Israel Experience led by Todd was indeed a faith journey of a lifetime. He is a wealth of historical and Biblical knowledge and holds a deep passion for Israel and its people.
Todd anticipated every need and planned ahead with meticulous detail to assure a balance to our days. His humor and his depth of knowledge combined to make for many engaging converstations. He never seemed to tire of my endless questions and generously gave of his time to each of us.
In addition to booking fantastic hotels and restaurants, we experienced the joy of staying in Todd and Rose Horton's Touched by Grace Home. I didn't think anything could rival the lavish breakfasts of our hotels, but Rose's breakfast feasts took first place! She was a gracious host, as were their four delightful children. Their home is full of grace and beauty.
At the beginning of our journey, Todd presented each of us with a copy of his study guide "An Israel Experience", a comprehensive guide to many of the sites we would be seeing and studying along the way. The guide is a keeper that I will treasure for years to come. It reflects the kind of attention to detail that is Todd's trademark to ensure his travelers enjoy a full and rich experience of Israel!
