Dead Sea Fieldtrip
We had a great, hot, long day in eastern Israel!
We went to Masada and explored.
We went to a national park and hiked to a waterfall.
We went to the Dead Sea and floated.
We went to Qumran and looked at rocks.
We went home and showered.
Jewish Quarter Fieldtrip
We saw an amazing ancient home that dates back to the time of the siege of the Temple Mount. A family lived there and we watched a very *realistic* video of their life in the home on the night of the siege. Then we went to the bottom of the temple mount to see the rocks thrown off by the Roman soldiers. The road on which they were thrown is a street that was probably a market place and dates back to the time of Christ. Then we had a devotional on some side steps to the Temple Mount on which Christ definitely walked.

Passion Week: Easter Sunday
We went to the Easter Sunday program in the Garden Tomb. There was a nice rock band (a little weird for us) and scripture reading and joy all around. Christ lives!
|we left the center quite early.|
|we also went to the Church of the Holy Sepulcher to listen to the choirs and smell the incense. So rich!|
