Day 6 in Israel

Standard

Day 6

Dead Sea/Masada

 

 

 

Today the journey goes to Masada, Herod’s mountaintop fortress that became the last stronghold of the Jewish rebellion against the romans.  The group will ride a cable car to the top to explore and they can peer down upon the remains of the Roman camps and siege ramp below.  They will walk among the remains of an ancient community near the shores of the Dead Sea at Qumran.  In the caves near there, the Bedouins discovered what became known to be as the Dead Sea Scrolls.  If time permits they will stop along the shore for a quick dip in the Dead Sea.

 

Blessings for the journey!

I am the mom of three beautiful daughters, wife to a genius, sister to a teacher, sis-in-law to an engineer, daughter to a yankee and a rebel, and a woman chasing God. I love to read, draw and be with my family. If the reading inspires me, then I draw what I read. Almost everything I draw is based around or about Jesus Christ. I attend church at First United Methodist Hillsville. Ronnie Collins is my associate pastor, also a blogger here. I love the Lord with all my heart and I hope what you see here will inspire your heart.
