Mark, I just looked at all your pics and I am in total awe. That truthfully don't even descirbe what I feel. Wow! Those are some awesome pics. Beautiful! Looks like everyone had such a great time there too. PTL!
I must admit it seems to be much more industrialized than I imagined. I dunno what I was thinking. :doh:
Mark, I want to thank you for sharing your your pics with us. I've been anxious to see, for I know that I will most likely never have the opportunity to ever visit myself. Now I can see the beautiful land through your eyes. Thanks. :thumb: :thumb:

My daughter is going to be over the moon :smile: she is 11 and for about 3 years she has been telling me that when she gets bigger she is going to Israel and teach the Jews about Jesus :smile: I have no idea where she got the idea to do that but she has read books on Israel and wants to learn the language and everything. So when I tell her you went I gaurentee she will be here looking over my shoulder :thumb:

The pictures are excellent Mark - I really enjoyed looking at them.
Is there any possibility that you can provide some more information on what each picture is of maybe? (Sorry if I have missed something somewhere).
Those mountain/desert scenes are really barren and sandy aren't they? Where are they?

Sure, I can do that;
the first page starts with the mount of the beatitudes, and the view over the sea of Galilee from there, then it moves on to Korazim, where Jesus did many miracles, and through to Capernaum, the synagogue and Peter's house, followed by more around the sea, and the location where Jesus is supposed to have reinstated Peter (an amazingly peaceful place). Then, the church of the annunciation, and all the catholic Mary stuff around there, including Mary's house. The Mount of transfiguration (mount tabor) and megiddo, where there's a cananite altar from Abraham's time. I can't remember the name of the last place on that page I'm afraid.
Page 2, starting at the 3rd photo is waadi quelt, the wilderness where Jesus was tempted by satan, very windy there, although the rainbow made up for that...(7th photo=me) then the YMCA in Jerusalem where we were staying, and some photo's of a walking tour around the old city. Via dolorosa, pool of bethsaida and the church of the holy sepulchure (yuk....how tasteless). The damascus gate, golgotha and the garden tomb. Then we move on down the dead sea valley, and qumran.
Page 3; the second photo onwards is Ein geidi (see in particular song of songs) and this moves on to Masada, where the Jews held out against the romans, and the ramp which the romans built up while the Jews comitted suicide....the Photo's of the man and the Bird are of out IT coordinator and the local species of bird which shares his surname (pearls to whoever can get the name...without looking at my church website). The dead sea, and dead sea mud (yes, that's our parish vicar coated in it), and me again, floating in the sea. Then up on the temple mount, and the orthodox church with the pretty onions....finishing that page with the garden of gethsemane.
Page 4; Jerusalem again, Bethlehem, and the shepherd's fields where they watched their flocks....
Hope that helps :smile:

I love those pics Mark! Helps me to see some beautiful things through your eyes that I will probably never be able to see though my own. Thanks again. :flowers:
