The beautiful Island of Grand Turk is the capital island of the Turks and Caicos. Take the
time to explore Cockburn Town’s wonderful selection of historical buildings including many
Bermudian and Colonial style buildings and ruins. Deep offshore waters serve as major
transit points for Humpback Whales, spotted Eagle Rays, Manta Rays and Turtles. Like to
fish? Tuna, Wahoo and Blue Marlin inhabit these same rich waters. If you’re a diver, or simply
interested in diving, Grand Turk is the place for you. With many dive operators and schools
it can cater from novice snorkeling to experienced divers.
SAN JUAN, PUERTO RICO (January 22, 1:00 P.M.—11:00 P.M.):
In days of yore, the waters near Puerto Rico teemed with pirate ships commanded by the
likes of Sir Francis Drake. Aye, they are long gone, but in their wake they have left an island
of national treasures: La Casa Blanca, built in 1501 for the island’s first governor, Ponce de
Leon; the cobblestone streets of Old San Juan; the tropical rain forests of El Yunque.
ST. THOMAS, U.S. vIRGIN ISLANDS (January 23, 8:00 a.M.—5:00 P.M.):

beaches, undersea gardens and tales of Blackbeard.

among the coral reefs, or paddle boat in the crystal clear bay. This island is a designated
wild bird sanctuary with nature trails leading visitors to the vantage points that are ideal
for bird watching.

Deepening relationships with loved ones—and with God—sometimes
requires getting away from the pace and routine of daily life. These
moments help us to refocus, regroup, grow and refresh. Time away can
be powerful, especially when it’s purposeful.

                         GETAWAY WITH GOD
                         God created us to know and enjoy him in a
                         daily, personal way. Sharing times of quiet pause
                         against the backdrop of majestic scenery and
                         fascinating destinations will deepen your faith as
                         you reconnect with your Savior.

                         CHRISTIAN FELLOWSHIP
                         Time together with like-minded believers is an
                         essential part of our Faith, and one of the great
                         hallmarks of Christian Travel. rest and reflect as
                         you grow new relationships, deepen friendships
                         and reconnect with loved ones.

                         INSIGHTFUL BIBLE TEACHING
                         God’s Word is living, active and specific in its
                         guidance for our lives. Prepare your heart to
                         hear God’s voice through powerful times of
                         teaching from his Word. Bring your curiosity
                         and anticipation as we seek to know him more.

                         WONDER-FILLED WORSHIP
                         We were created to worship God, and the act of
                         praising him is a spirit-lifting experience for every
                         believer. God dwells in the midst of our praises,
                         and often reveals himself to our hearts as we
                         focus our adoration on him.

                         SPIRITUAL RENEWAL
                         Pausing from the stresses of our fast-paced,
                         modern lives is more important now than ever.
                         you’ll find encouragement from other believers
                         and intimate time with the Savior are the best
                         ways to return home restored and renewed.

                        rest and renewal.
                  a deeper walk with the Lord.
                  new friends and experiences.
                        Forever memories.

    It is our hope and prayer

    that your travels are inspirational

    and exceptional in every way.
