Wilson Trip to the Holy Land
Twelve members of the Wilson community enjoyed a guided tour of the Holy Land last November.

Traveling to the Holy Land with Angela and Martin Zimmann was a dream come true. The highlight of my trip was standing with my feet in the Sea of Galilee. I just started singing ‘Standing on Holy Ground.’ My daughter Ashley Beach-Reid began videotaping me and harmonizing with me. That moment was special. To be in places known to me through the Bible was heart-warming: placing my palm on the West Wall, walking the Via Dolorosa, and being at Mt. Carmel (place of fire and the site of Elijah’s ‘showdown’ with the priests of Baal) are among my key memories. I would love to go again. — Faye Wilson ’77
