Our Trip To The Holy Lands

Brian and I, along with 18 others from our church were blessed with the opportunity to travel to Egypt, Jordan and Israel to follow the Exodus route that Moses and the Israelites followed on their way to the promised land.  We started in Egypt at the famous pyramids of Giza and ended in the amazing city of Jerusalem, Israel.  The memories and experiences of our trip will last a lifetime.  The things we saw and experienced have changed us forever.  We are so thankful to our gracious Lord for giving us this amazing trip.  I will be posting our pictures along with some explanations over the next I-don't-know-how-long.  I have a lot of pictures and not a whole lot to say and not very much time to spend on the blogging anyway.  So here a few pictures to get started...

Veiw of Israel from the top of Mt Nebo in Jordan
(This is the only glimpse of Israel that Moses was allowed to see)


In Tel Aviv, Israel: Delicious appetizer of the best feta cheese I have ever had.
Seriously.


Trina was baptized in the Jordan River.


Jerusalem at last.

Okay.  That's all I have for now.  More soon to come.  I hope.
