Today we embarked on three marvelous hiking adventures. The first hike was the famous Masada. Then we hiked to the spring in En Gedi. Our last hike drove home the idea of what Joshua’s real purpose is. Qumran is the site where the Dead Sea Scrolls were found.

Shabbat Shalom from the Dead Sea. Today was the day of wandering in the Negev; except we wandered with buses and food. And it was not for 40 years.
We boarded the troop transports, Bus 1 and Bus 2 which have the bare necessities such as AC and water, and headed to Beth Shemesh. We arrived in Beth Shemesh and Brad Bell spoke on Samson.
Our journey to the Holy Land began yesterday morning with a drive to the airport, check in, and security. We hiked along the hill and then stopped at city gate ruins from Solomonic times. We all sat around and listed to Rich speak about the area, the ruins, and life lessons to take from the site.
This is the moment we have all been waiting for, and Israel has arrived! I want to begin by praising God for giving us all the opportunity to go on this adventure through the land of His people. It is only by Him that our trip is even made possible.
ts crazy to think that the year has gone by so quickly and it is now time to head to Israel. Seems like just yesterday everyone was meeting each other for the first time and moving into the building
We cannot wait to run around the lake without wading through shin high mud and crossing mini glaciers.
With no tests or major assignments due, this week has provided the much-needed rest that most of us desired. Spring was arriving with the last traces of snow slowly melting and the grass beginning to show down in the lower lawn. However, winter had one last parting show.
The snow is so deep that you can jump into it, and sink in so far that you can be almost completely covered.
This is our second, and final preview. Hoorah! Our speaker this week, who just so happens to be related to Rich Ferreira. He is speaking on biblical finances, and the proper ways of spending Gods money.
