Back in the US

We arrived back in America yesterday after a fantastic 10 days in Israel. The last couple of days were spent in the Galilee touring and seeing the beautiful north of Israel. This was one of the best trips we have had, the people who went with us were great and were always happy to do whatever was needed. We had life changing experiences, perhaps one of the most powerful was when we helped at the Temple Mount sifting project. This work was taking some of rubble thrown out by the Muslim authorities in charge of the Temple Mount and sifting through it for artifacts from the First and Second Temple period. These stones were covered by the ash from the burning of the Second Temple by the Romans. I had never had an experience quite like it. To have the ashes from the Second Temple on our hands was amazing. Please pray for our coming trip in May 2010. It will be here faster than we think. May the G-d of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob bless each of us. David

Glad to hear about your trip. Sounds like an amazing time. It's nice to follow along each day, almost like being there.
