October 23, 2023
A statement from Verso Ministries regarding the recent intensification of conflict in and around the Gaza Strip:
Pilgrim safety is of utmost importance to us. We are monitoring the situation and are in frequent communication with our staff on the ground in Israel.
Verso Ministries pilgrimages to the Holy Land departing in October 2023:
Verso Ministries pilgrimages to the Holy Land departing during the month of October have been postponed. All pilgrims have been contacted by the Group Leader and Verso Pilgrim Support with next steps.
Verso Ministries pilgrimages to the Holy Land departing in November 2023 and later:
We will continue to monitor the situation as things unfold in the coming weeks. It is too early to make any final decisions given the information available at this time. We believe it is unlikely that your pilgrimage will be affected. We will work with your Group Leader to make decisions that prioritize your safety and wellbeing.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our Pilgrim Support team at email@example.com or 574-383-9396. Our office hours are 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
We ask you to join us in prayer for a lasting, just peace in the Holy Land.
