Baptism

Friday, May 13th, 2011

Well up until now, my infant baptism had done me just fine!  But being baptized in the Jordan River was too special to pass up.  

About 2/3 of the group were immersed in cool running water where the Sea of Galilee empties into the Jordan. Special outfits, singing, 3 pastors, supportive friends, tears, wet hugs, photos, little fish, loud Alleluias…and then the commemorative gift shop!

I Walked Today, Where Jesus Walked

Friday, May 13th, 2011

80% of the miracles occurred around the northern part of the Sea of Galilee, the ones that got written down at least. We visited the hillside where Jesus gave the sermon on the mount, and Capernum ,which was where He and the guys made base camp. Saw the synogogue and Peter’s house. Went into the Golan Heights where huge quantities of water come out of the rocks and flows to the Jordan River. oh yeah, the camera battery ran out  🙁
