And that was just the first half of the morning. We all could have spent the whole day there, but we tore ourselves away and headed by bus to Mount Carmel, the place where Elijah battled against the prophets of Baal. It was dramatic seeing the Jezreel Valley spread out below us. And it came complete with a giant airstrip and Israeli fighter jets taking off and landing. When we get home, you will see lots of pictures from this day!
The afternoon was fun and relaxing, swimming at some hot springs in a national park. Everyone is doing great, we are getting to know each other as a group, and we are enjoying each other's company. Lindford comments on how engaged our participants are, and all the good questions they come up with. It's not unusual on a bus ride or as we walk from place to place to hear conversations about the bible going on with great intensity!
We love staying in the Fauzi Azar Inn, you can google it, a fabulous little oasis in Nazareth, and the food here is spectacular! This is Carol Penner writing, I am one of the faith partners.
