Donkey StatueThis spring my son-in-law, Carl (Kathy’s husband), Carl on Donkey in Israel had the privilege of going with his church on a tour of Israel. Carl and Blake by David Pascoe (Although, for Carl it was also a work trip, as he served as a videographer.)Carl and Brad When he came home, I asked if I could share some of his pictures with you. Carl by LVK Jordan He hardly took any stills, but several of his friends took pictures which they Carl with Dave Pascoeshared with him (in particular, Dave Pascoe, pictured above), LVK Jordan and they’ve been kind enough to allow me to share their memories with you too! Petra DP So, in case you’ve been thinking about this most holy of lands, which is today (as always) in such deep distress and terror, let me pass along a few photos: Blessed by your name May we be reminded to “pray for the peace of Jerusalem.” Petra Near Jerusalem.
