Thursday, May 29, 2014 – Israel Trip

We all had a good night’s sleep and woke up at about 05:00 this morning.  We all did our devotions and then met for breakfast at about 06:30.  We had a great Jewish breakfast.  I really like the breakfast food in Israel.

We decided that since today was going to be a slow day, we would go do some sight-seeing.  We sure did have a great time around the Sea of Galilee today.  I will post some photos later of the sites we saw.

This afternoon we greeted the Givati families and officers as they arrived for the dinner.  It was great to see old friends and make some new ones.  We had a great time of fellowship and storytelling.

The dinner this evening was very nice.  It was held in a large air conditioned tent.  There were over 450 people present.  Most of them were family members of a Givati soldier killed in action.  There were some grieving hearts in that room.  I hope that it was a help to them to take their thoughts off of their grief for a few minutes this evening.

We are all done in!  Jet lag is hitting us hard tonight.  C’est la vie!

We are looking forward to a good day tomorrow as well.

I covet your prayers for us tomorrow!
