Welcome to Israel

We made it safely to the Holy Land! We flew into Tel Aviv yesterday, met our guide and bus driver, and then proceeded to drive to Joppa for lunch. We walked around the old city, enjoyed the scenic view, saw the old port where Jonah got on his boat, and visited the church marking the place where Peter had his vision of the animals. We stayed the night in Tiberias, took a boat ride on the Sea of Galilee, and visited churches marking the spot of the Beatitudes and the feeding of the five thousand. We also went to Capernaum, the hometown of several of the disciples and one of the centers of Jesus' ministry.

More next time - in the meantime you cam go to my facebook page to see a few more  photos. Shalom!
