Remembering the price that was paid for freedom

  • Written by  Ian Anderson
ANZAC Cove in Gallipoli will be a significant stop on the ‘‘Anzac Centenary Pilgrimage’.

A tour of Israel and Turkey in April next year will not only be an opportunity to experience significant spiritual locations, but to also remember the price that was paid by many for our freedom.

Jeff Baills, a minister at Rangeville Community Church, and his wife Anita, will be leading the Inner Faith Travel tour – ‘Anzac Centenary Pilgrimage‘ from April 1 to May 2, 2015.

“We are going on this tour as we have always had a desire to travel to this part of the world,” said Ps. Jeff. “And it combines our two great passions of understanding – and now visiting – the places and times of the Bible and never forgetting the price that was paid by many for the freedom we enjoy as a nation.”

The tour will be broken down into three separate, but interlinked parts.

“We will be combining two important aspects of what we describe as a pilgrimage,” he said.

“Firstly to places of physical and spiritual significance to Christian’s and secondly visiting places significant to our nation’s history.”

“As we remember where those before us went to war and remind ourselves of what we have been given in freedom, we want to pass this on to the next generation.”

The April tour will allow participants to experience the best of the weather, many of the places that Jesus visited, other important biblical landmarks, and even the Passover in Jerusalem.

“There will also be times of social enjoyment like floating in the Dead Sea and places like Gallipoli, celebrating ANZAC Day at Villers Bretonneux and spending time in Paris before coming home,” said Jeff.
