The last 2 days of our trip were spent in Jerusalem. There were so many things we did there that I will probably have to break up my comments into separate posts.

Our accommodations for three nights were in the Old City of Jerusalem, at the Lutheran Guest House. The rooms were small, but adequate. The room I shared with another traveler had no air conditioning, so we slept with the window and door opened every night. Of course, Ramadan was in full swing the entire time we were there, so every evening and morning horns were blasting, and people were celebrating until early morning. The horns started at 2:30 a.m. each morning–you can imagine the amount of sleep we got!

The streets of the Old City are narrow, in some cases much too small for cars, and everywhere were steps up or down.

The guest house had a beautiful plaza in the back, overlooking the city. A number of us would spend the late evening hours outside, enjoying the cool air and scenery. It was a wonderful place for spending time in the Word in the morning.

On Friday, Lord willing, I will be traveling to Israel, and will spend two glorious weeks walking where Jesus walked. Hopefully, I will be able to post some of my experiences to share with anyone interested.

May God bless each of you in the coming weeks.
