Exploring the terrain of the ancient and holy lands is part of the Quest, Stephanie. It is a journey of a thousand miles, and yet its fulfillment ends in the Fountain of Life itself. And there your will find the Spear.
And then what first began as your 'No! No! No!' will end in you saying 'Yes! Yes! Yes!'
Stephanie, dear, the Spear is within your reach. All you have to do is reach out and take it.
