Arrived in the Holy Land!

I am so happy to be here in Israel again! I arrived yesterday morning and made my way from the Ben Gurion/Tel Aviv airport to a town called Kiryat Shmona, in the north near the border of Lebanon. My friend Alon lives there in an apartment over looking the mountains in the area.

Today we traveled to Alon's mom's house in Kfar Vradim, about two hours away from Kiryat Shmona. On our way, we saw the sun setting in the mountains.

On Sunday I will head for the Kotel Wall in Jerusalem.

It's such a blessing to be here - and the paths are opening in every direction with opportunity. I may go the Sea of Gaililee, or Alon has family that lives in the desert, so I may stay there if the weather cools down. (It's around 100 degrees right now). 6 of my friends from my last trip to Africa are all in Israel now, so we will surely meet up soon.

I will write more later.

Love,
Josh
