Took 18 hours and finally made it. For any who are interested, I'll try to post pics from travels over the next week. Heading to Jerusalem tomorrow and staying in Joppa tonight on the Mediterranean Sea. We'll be here for Orthodox Christmas on Jan.6th. Looking forward to visiting the sights of Christ's steps!

What a day....hard to recap right now but in short...amazing

Began the day in Caesarea and sat in the Roman theater where Paul strode and gave his defense of the Gospel to Herrod Agrippa.

From there through the Plain of Sharon to Mount Carmel. 1,800 ft. Above sea level and you see the Valley of Jezreel

Incredible view for miles where the Cananites worshipped Baal.... Human sacrifices etc...Across from the valley you see Nazareth (evil vs. living place of Christ)

This valley is where John was given the vision on the island of Patmos of the last battle of Armegeddon (named for the city which is Megiddo. Here we walked through what is believed to be King Solomon's palace where you can see the stables for 150 chariot horses and water wells

Armageddon valley was a wild experience thinking of a future war and end times while we had Israeli fighter jets flying overhead. They have a base in the valley where the take off from underground and land then disappear underground !

These where the entry gates to the city with three entrances for security

Tomorrow we take a boat across the Sea of Galilee from Tiberias, visit Capernaum then mount of Beatitudes to the River Jordan where I'll have an opportunity to baptize in the river (with waders I hope). Shalom and be back tomorrow . An early happy New Year to all (9:45p.m here)
