Return to the Holy Land

It’s been awhile since my last post, but the semester has been very busy. Luckily, Christmas is a little over a week away and with Christmas, a break from classes.

If anyone has any prayer requests, please use the form at the bottom of this post to send me your prayer requests. We don’t have a completely idea of exact locations we are going yet, but it is something of a “best hits” edition. So we hope to make it to the most notable places. In addition to sending in prayer requests, I ask for you prayers for a safe and fruitful pilgrimage.

Every now and then there will be spiritual insights, but for the most part these will be saved for the conclusion post. Below are the places that we traveled to during this section:
