The Holy Land has always called to Pastor David Mumme of Waterville, but the timing never seemed quite right--the kids were little, things at the church were busy, etc. 

"He has always wanted to go," his wife, Glenda, said of her husband. "He's read Biblical Archaeology Review for more than 20 years." 

Finally, they decided the trip need to happen, and they were going to invite others to join them. They would lead a tour of the Holy Land. 

On January 21, twelve members of their Trinity Lutheran Church, Waterville, congregation and four friends departed for with the Mummes for a 10-day tour of Israel. 

The group traveled throughout the country, visiting numerous historical and Biblical sites. 

"It's almost unreal to be standing where Jesus walked and taught and where David slew Goliath," Glenda stated.
