Israel Trip Update #6
What a wonderful Lord’s Day! We started out with a drive to the Mt. of Olives where we sent a greeting back home from all the group to be shared Sunday morning at New Columbia GMC.
The “Palm Sunday Walk” was absolutely wonderful. We walked the path that Jesus walked some 2000 years ago knowing what was about to take place. We stopped at the Garden of Gethsemane for a devotional by Steve Cassidy. He challenged our hearts to “go further in the Garden.” Thanks Steve, God really used you.
There were many others from outside our group who were “picking up the fragments” as they walked by us. We had a ladies quartet sing, “Who is He in Yonder stall?”
Next, we went by the Eastern Gate and walked past the Temple Wall steps
Then, we proceeded to the Upper Room. The Presence of the Lord settled down here as we sang. Then Bro. King prayed.
We entered through the Zion Gate for a long walk through the Jewish Quarter of the Old City.
The little streets were crowded, and the shop keepers were eager to sell us their goods. Over and over we explained that this was our Sabbath and we would not be buying today. Once they understood what we were saying they ceased with their sales pitches.
Some think we are old school, but I say what a privilege to keep a day of the week for the Lord’s Day! Carefulness in living many years ago was well respected; now they think we’ve lost our minds if we mention it. ;-)
I’ll stop for now, but there’s more to come...
