On with the rest of our Greece tour! In this video we go around Thessaloniki, visit the Baptistery of St. Lydia, the Archaeological Site of Philippi and end our day at Kavala/Neapolis where Paul was said to have first set foot in Europe after a Macedonian man appeared to him in a vision telling him to “Come over to Macedonia and help us!”
Visited the oldest & biggest monastery in Meteora–The Great Meteoron, stopped by Vergina (Aigai) to see the Royal Tomb of King Philip II and Berea where Paul preached to the Bereans.
I used to just look at Meteora in photos. Seeing the rock formations & beautiful monasteries up close almost made me cry! Check out the vlog for more sights and tons of trivia!
My trip to Greece and Turkey is a testament of God’s goodness and provision. After going to the Holy Land, I was told that Paul’s Journey + Seven Churches of Revelation was coming up and immediately, I started praying to God to help bring me there. I know I could have gone to more places in Asia which are much nearer and the fares much cheaper, but what I really wanted was a meaningful trip that would be educational and so in line with my faith. The Holy Land trip clearly impacted how I study God’s Word, having seen the places mentioned in both the Old and New Testament. Still, I knew there was more to see. Going to Greece meant retracing Paul’s steps as he shared the gospel far and wide despite the dangers, opposition and imprisonment that he faced. I will talk more about Turkey and our visit to Patmos in the next travel vlogs. Enjoy our arrival in Athens! If you are a follower of Jesus Christ and love God’s Word, this is a trip I recommend that you take!
God bless you!
