Note: our Director of Christian Education, Michael Farmer, is on a trip to Israel through his studies at the Methodist Theological School in Ohio. While there, he is sending periodic updates about what he's been doing. This is his first.
Well after a 3 hour delay in Newark because the refrigerators and ovens kept shorting out, we finally made it to tel Aviv. My group of 3 professors, 2 alumni and 13 students all made it safe and sound with our luggage. It's been a long trip but I'm happy to be here safe and sound. We are meeting the bus drive and tour guide now, then changing money and heading to our hotel for the night. I'm sure we will be stopping along the way for some site seeing. I'm sending a picture of my friend Angie and Becky and myself as well as the map that shows our route.
Blessings from the Holy Land,
