Help me get to the Holy Land!
I was willing to forgo the idea of traveling until I was offered a trip to the Holy Land. This offer came in around the same time that I had started my "spiritual reawakening" as a Christian. The pastor described to us the significance of each place in the Holy Land as discussed in the Bible, and I felt fascinated by it. The pastor was encouraging me to join as it would serve as both a pilgrimage, as well as an opportunity to get to know the Bible more. I told the pastor that I would be thinking about it as I had recently allocated my savings in some investments and in my own start-up a few weeks before I knew about the Holy Land pilgrimage.
So here I am, hoping that by some miracle, I would be able to raise some funds for the trip. My parents are not exactly keen on this kinds of trips, as they find it costly. I earn a little bit above the minimum wage, and I am finding it difficult to finance this trip. If I use my savings right now for this trip, I would be wiping out my emergency fund. :(
