Pam Cheek

Travel Host

I fell in love with Israel.   I knew my visit would be a trip of a lifetime…the historical sites, the culture… walking where Jesus walked… but I didn’t know I would fall in love!  There were so many surprises I had never expected!  Who would have known I would return four times in five years?  Now I have a passion to take others to the Land.  With 14 years of experience in the travel industry as well as leading groups I am so excited to have the opportunity to take you along with me!  I have a degree as well from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary although I am not a theologian.  I am more of a story teller who loves to captivate her audience with the wonders of Israel.   Come join me…and fall in love….
