Israel – Tel Aviv and Ancient Joppa

On Feb. 20 we flew to Newark, then a 9 1/2 hour flight to Tel Aviv, Israel. I love to fly, but that’s too long for me, and the space is really cramped.

When finally we approached Tel Aviv it was the morning of the 21st, and I was very excited. There, below me, was Israel! I think any follower of Jesus would feel like I did – I’m about to walk where Jesus and Abraham and Joshua and David and Paul walked!

We got in our tour bus and drove into Tel Aviv. Here’s a picture taken from the ancient city of Joppa (just south of Tel Aviv), and the Mediterranean Ocean.
