Tennessee Volunteers # 10

We just got back froom the airport. The Tennessee Volunteers will be flying in another couple of hours (11:30 local time, 3:30 Central Time)

We had a very good last day. Most of the group went down to the Dead Sea. We were blessed to see a herd of Ibex near Ein Geddi (David's Spring - across the road from the Deas Sea)before a quick dip. One the way back to Jerusalem we stopped by Qumran where the Dead Sea Scrolls were found. Very interesting place.

Over supper we had a time of sharing highlights about our project. We made one last stop in Jerusalem to pray together over the city before departing to take the group to the airport. (Below) That is the Dome of the Rock over David's left shoulder.

The team sacrificed much to join us for this project and their efforts were greatly appreciated. We firmly believe that God will build on the foundation that they've help to lay. We also realize that family, friends and co-workers have also sacrificed to allow the team to come and prayed fervently for them and us before and during their stay. You have been an integral part of this project as well. Thank you; we couldn't have done it without you!
