Shabbat in Jerusalem

It was a busy day in Jerusalem at the Church of the Holy Sepulcher!  But we forged on ahead with the crowd anyway. It has been awhile since I have heard so many languages and seen so many groups touring.  Evidently the tourists are brave and continuing to come to Jerusalem even while the stabbings continue.

It has been a beautiful Sabbath day in Jerusalem. The sun is shining again and the temperature is warming up.  We had a nice long walk to the Old City and came back to our apartment to rest for a bit.  Some of us had to recharge with food.

Tomorrow we will begin early finishing our painting project in Meir's apartment.  If there is time we will attend worship services at King of Kings Congregation.  This will be our last week in Jerusalem. Please continue to pray for us that we accomplish all we are supposed to do while we are here.
