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

DID YOU READ THE NEW BOOK?

The Chronicle of Pilgrimage to the Holy Land is the fruit of over seven years of labor. Numerous archives and private collections were perused for ancient scrolls and historic testimonies; antique photographs and artwork were computer-analyzed and renewed for first-ever display, and historic sites were brought alive by vibrant contemporary photography. Each historic event has been detailed by historians for factual accuracy, and then edited by acting newspaper editors as they would today: deciding which "story" will enter the "front page" and with what often sensational headline to top it with - to present the happening in a contemporary, concise and authentic fashion.
The result is a spectacular album of 256 chromo pages, enriched with over 1100 (!) color photographs, depicting the events from year 0 to 2006. Using headlines, brief reports and multiple pictures and illustrations, history comes to life in a light, live-coverage-like, sensational newspaper style. The reader finds himself actually living the period, fighting within the Crusader ranks, becoming energized and excited by the pilgrimage to the Holy Land and the encounter with the historic and holy places.
The Album was further examined by authorities' clergy and heads of the various church denominations, and was praised enthusiastically to be both an authentic report, as well as a fresh, unique and enjoyable historical account.
Join this vivid and enthralling report of an ongoing adventure over 2000 years old.
