Well, our flight was uneventful (PTL) and we actually landed in Israel 45 minutes early. Many thanks to Don and Linda Portratz for giving us a lift!! I am looking out my window at this moment at a full moon over the Sea of Galilee. What a sight!
We will begin at 8 in the morning and start our journey. What a priviledge to be here, in the footsteps of Jesus, with Lillian and Kathy Wysong and Bob and Sandra Story. Mike, our guide, says hello to all our pilgrims from the November trip.
Other than the pushy Europeons trying to muscle Lillian out of the way from dinner, all is well. Check daily for updates and some tid-bits of informaiton. I will be praying for our eintire church here, I brought the new directory, and I will be placing our prayer list in the Western Wall for special prayers.
Have a blessed day in Hartwell!!
