Update: Below is a better, shorter video of the trip of photos I took while there.
The photos you see are of the Jerusalem skyline, the Garden of Gethsemane (Garden of Olives), the Via Dolorosa, the church of the Holy Sepulcher, Golgotha (hill of the skull), the Garden Tomb and me at the tomb of Christ. It was empty:) He is risen!

Its been over a month since our return from the Holy Land. Several of you have asked when will I post more stories and photos from our trip. Well. Its been more difficult than I imagined. When I last left you in Jerusalem, we had only just begun to discover the wonders of the City of David. I love so much about that city, particularly the mount of olives and the garden tomb. However, my personal reality is that I cannot yet talk about the beauty, majesty, and meaning of Jerusalem. I am still processing this experience.
In the meantime, Ive created a video. Well, Ive created two videos. Israel Part One and Israel Part Two. YouTube wont let me publish a movie longer than 10 minutes.
There is a soundtrack for both videos, so be sure you have the sound on.
While the photos dont do justice to the moving, heart level experiences we had, our hope is that these videos will in some way convey a picture of what we experienced in Israel. Video one is mostly Tel Aviv, Caesarea, and The Galilee. Video Two is the Golan Heights, War Zones, Jerusalem, the Ne Gev, the En Gedi, Masada, the Dead Sea and the end of our wonderful time in Israel.
The videos are GRAINY and I cant trouble shoot the problem. If you want to see clear and crisp photos, I will post my picassa link later this week.
Much Love for Israel and for You–
