Hey parents, graduation is just around the corner and we want to make sure you have all the information that you need.
Our journey to the Holy Land has come to its end. You may remember when we started our adventure at Tel Gezer, where we were challenged to make our Standing Stones point towards God.
Shabbat Shalom from Ellie Mullins and Christina Garibay! For those of you who arent familiar with the term Shabbat, it is the Jewish sabbath day which begins Friday at sundown and ends Saturday an hour after sundown. Shabbat is a day of rest for the Jewish people
We began our excursions with a trip down Hezekiahs tunnel, a 1,500 foot long water system (tunnel) built by Hezekiah. [Looking through our notes (or lack of them) we couldn’t find any more information about the tunnel, so we asked Rich Ferreira if he knew any more about it.

We woke up bright and early this morning to greet the sun while on a boat on the sea of Galilee. It was the most legit thing ever. The very sea where Jesus walked on the water and calmed the storm.

Hey, its Sammy Mull and Ryan Hawkins talking to you from the Sea of Galilee. Today has been a VERY busy day! We started our morning off with devotions with Carl and Vickie. They talked to us about the importance of God’s Word as a filter which sorts out the world’s influence from God’s truth in our lives.
