I have been remiss in blogging because I am busy assisting in building my media business, traveling the globe promoting world peace, and re-focusing on my lifetime message of total body wellness: Body, mind, spirit (soul) health. I wanted to announce that Donna and I will be hosting a cruise around the Holy Land next October. Stay tuned for more information on one of our blogs....
Here is an article from my recent participation at NRB (National Religious Broadcasters) where I was the keynote speaker for the Israeli Department of Tourism. They presented me with an award for my continued support and endorsement of Holy Land pilgrimages. I have been taking groups there since 1972!

1000 Christian Leaders Fete Israel Tourism At Mega Religious Broadcasters ConventionNashville – February 20, 2012: Israel’s Minister of Tourism spoke to 1,000 Christian leaders on Sunday morning at the National Religious Broadcasters’ Convention annual Celebrate Israel breakfast. The Israel event has been a hallmark of every NRB convention for two decades, and this year the audience heard testimonies from Dr. Robert Schuller, Dr. Robert Stearns and Joseph Amaral. Each of these leaders received the Israel Ministry of Tourism’s Faithful Ambassador Award, in appreciation of their support of Christian tourism to Israel.
“We consider Christian visitors not mere tourists, they are our friends,” said Misezhnikov,” and we see our job of promoting tourism to Israel not as a job, but as a mission. Which is why we have newly created a Religious Tourism Department in the Ministry dedicated solely to underscoring the message that “Israel is the Holy Land with Jerusalem at its heart.”"
“Israel’s presence at the NRB convention is central to our message to American Christians that after visiting Israel ‘you will never be the same,’” said Haim Gutin, Israel Commissioner for Tourism, North and South America, and organizer of the morning event.
Chairman of Bank Hapoalim, Yair Seroussi, updated the audience on Israel’s burgeoning economy, and Danny Saadon, Vice President and General Manager, North & Central America of El Al Israel Airlines, awarded tickets to Israel to the winner of a drawing.
North America is the largest source of foreign tourism to Israel – and it is estimated that some 50% of American tourists to the country are Christian.
