shalom!

I had planned to blog everyday on our trip to share with you what we are experiencing.  However, it simply can't be done.  I'm taking in so much, learning so much and I can't begin to sort through it all in my brain.  It truly is a life changing experience and I'm so thankful I am here.  It will probably take me a while to really break down everything we are seeing and learning before I can share it with you, but don't worry... I will.  I know you were concerned. However, I will share with you a few highlights so far!

Nazareth - I really liked seeing this "village" where Jesus grew up.  It's so incredible to see history really unfold before us and how real everything becomes by seeing the places where amazing things happened!

Dead Sea - We all know I'm not a huge fan of water, but I couldn't pass up the opportunity to swim in the dead sea.  However, I did not know that you float in it!! It's the coolest water! My favorite because I don't have to worry about going under water :)

The Jordan River - This is by far the highlight of the trip.  Brook baptized me in the Jordan River.  Such and incredible experience we were able to share together and be baptized in the place that Jesus was. More great pictures to come from this soon!

The Sea of Galilee - We took a boat ride across the Sea of Galilee.  This is where Jesus walked on the water.  Wow.  Can't even begin to explain how neat that was.

Western Wall (Wailing Wall) - This was a great experience. This I am still taking in.

Jerusalem - Just incredible.  We've only spent one day here so far and I'm really looking forward to learning more and digging more into this city.  I love it!

Jeruselam

More to come soon... my brain is processing!
