GOSPEL ON THE NILE

MARCH 18 - MARCH 28, 2025

Throughout the unique "Gospel on the Nile" tour, you will not only explore the ancient Egyptian gospel but also strengthen your faith. Delve into the past as we uncover parallels to the beliefs of Adam, Noah, Abraham, and Moses, sought by the first Pharaoh. By immersing yourself in the ancient concepts, seeing, feeling, and touching them, you will gain a deeper appreciation for the divine restoration of the gospel through Joseph Smith. Discover the remarkable depiction of these sacred principles, significant to Latter-day Saints, on ancient temple walls and papyrus scrolls. This is a life-changing, faith-building experience you won’t want to miss.
