Judy provided this map which shows the locations visited during the trip:
The trip was everything I could have expected and so much more! I expected to see overt clashes between faiths. There were none. YEA! I didn't expect to see indications of how much of an "Apartheid" state there actually is, with fifty-some laws applicable for Palestinians that are not applicable for Israelis. One humorous (almost) nonsensical law is that Palestinians cannot own cows! Sooooo, the speaker mentioned some Palestinians (he mentioned only his case) have bought cows (from Israelis) and moved them one step ahead of the Israeli authorities that want to confiscate them.
Okay time for a little break. Yes, we had fun. People in our groups rode a camel if they wished. Case in point above!
I'm still processing this time. We (the 108 Mosaic of Peace Presbyterians) have been asked by multiple speakers to communicate our trip and to write Congress & even the Sec. of State AND President.
Love Forever With Each Passing Day's Ongoing Progression In Our Higher Power
Finally as a P.S. The sights, Jericho [where the YWCA school for 5 and 6 year olds is 1000 feet below sea level (and above 100 degrees Fahrenheit we were there)], Jesus's ministry in Capernum, His crucifixion sites, His Birth Place in Bethlehem, His baptism in the Jordan River, . . . I saw & experienced it first hand - AWESOME! On the other side of it all, ******We are on Holy Ground wherever we happen to be.*****
