During the Faith Travel Association’s (FTA) annual conference in Atlanta, Georgia this week, MEJDI Co-Founder was awarded the Inspire Award. According to FTA,
The Inspire Award is FTA’s most prestigious award, given to a person whose outstanding contributions over the course of their career have greatly advanced the faith-based travel market. The successful candidate’s innovative programs must have a lasting impact on not only the sector but on the lives of those who embark on these journeys of faith.
Aziz unfortunately could not attend the FTA conference, but to accept his award on his behalf, MEJDI’s Chief Advisor for Christian Engagement Mae Cannon was present.
In response to receiving the award, Aziz states,
I’m truly honored to receive this award. We’ve created MEJDI Tours because we believe that travel is one of the most powerful forces globally for intercultural understanding and positive change. With 3 million tourists visiting the Holy Land each year, can you imagine what the impact would be if everybody traveled this way? I want to thank FTA for recognizing that travel can change the world.
