After eating one last shawarma, having my meticulously packed luggage completely disemboweled going through Israeli customs, and flying for a combined total of almost 18 hours, I'm now back in my beloved California. Before getting completely buried in the next barrage of activity, I will be blogging through the rest of the trip, which includes hiking around Galilee, praying at the Garden Tomb, visiting Qumran and En Gedi, swimming in the Dead Sea, climbing Masada, and touring Petra and Egypt.
Also, sometime during the next several weeks we'll be hosting an "Israel Night" here at the house, complete with pictures, show-and-tell, and olives. I'll keep you posted regarding date and time.
Because He lives!
