The Costal Plains

Good evening all!
Hope this finds you all well! We just arrived in Jerusalem after another BIG day in Israel! Today we started out by going to Tel Meggido - the second oldest city in the world (and, of course, the site for some future activities....). After that, we up to Mount Carmel where we studied the story of Elijah while sitting on the side of Mount Carmel. Our very own Danny Loeffelholz even got to teach about his favorite Bible character, Elijah. After that, we headed to the coast to tour around Caesarea - the famous port city of Herod. We finished up our day by heading up to "The House" as Marty likes to call it. Tomorrow and Wednesday we will be touring Jerusalem before we head home on Wednesday night!

The Lord was gracious to us yet again today as we had no injuries, no one sick and beautiful weather. The Lord is also working on our hearts in a big way - no doubt an answer to prayer as well. Tomorrow, we hear, is supposed to be rainy, so any extra prayers for good weather are appreciated!

Enjoy some shots from our day and I'll post an update tomorrow!
