We are busy setting up camp and getting ready for fun and crazy summer. Camp starts in a couple of weeks and in the mean time we are working all around camp getting all of the different departments ready for the thousands of campers which are about to descend upon us here soon.

Well for all of you that have been following the Joshua blogs for this past year we hope that you have enjoyed getting to know this Joshua family. Currently the students have headed home for their pre summer break before they come back to finish their time in Joshua putting into practice all the things that they have learned over the past year
We are down to the last wire here at Joshua. We have but one and a half weeks left and so much has already happened. We have become a family and it is tough seeing this year wind down to an end. We have been through the good and bad times together and will hopefully still continue to invest in each other after the program.
Today we had a real relaxing day being able to walk around the city of Jerusalem and visit sites. We started off going to the Mount of Olives where we got one of the best panoramic views of the Temple on the Mount. It was interesting because we were given a picture of what transpired in the past and what will come in the future with our Lord.
Shalom from Israel. The days have flown by and I can hardly believe that the trip is almost over! The journey we have taken has been incredible and just having the ability to soak it all in has been a challenge in itself.
Today was a heavy day. This morning we went back to the same area and visited the Dome of the Rock on the Temple Mount. Yesterday evening, we got to see for the first time ever in Joshua history the rabbinic tunnels that burrow beneath the Western Wall. In the tunnels, we were able to go down to the actual street level of the time of Herod the Great.
Everything is going just fine here in the Holy Land. The agenda of Biblical sites that we stumbled upon today consisted of Nazareth, Megiddo, Mt. Carmel, and Caesarea. So, we were pretty much just hanging out in the Northern portion of Israel.
Day seven in Israel started a little earlier than the rest, 15 minutes in fact. We began the morning in a venture onto the sea of Galilee on a boat. From the docks of Tiberius we set sail in an ancient fashion, out into the center of Sea of Galilee
Today was a fantastic day, filled with easy hikes and beautiful scenery. Our first stroll was up a hill at Gamla. We came to a place overlooking the hill that looks like a camel’s back.
Calves aching, lungs on fire, sweat raining from the forehead, 80 Joshuaites and friends made a treacherous hike up Mount Arbel and around the area of Galilee.
