Mission Trip 2015

From the Bridge crossing, the group was transferred to Jericho, where they visited the Mt. of Temptation, overlooking the Jordan Valley.   In Bethlehem, they had a walking tour of the Old City, prayed at the Nativity Church, as well as at the Christmas Lutheran Church, where they enjoyed coffee and meeting Pastor Raheb and the congregation. 

 In the south, the members of the Mission Trip walked through the Old City of Hebron, and visited the Ibrahim Mosque, the Tombs of Patriarchs and a glass factory.  In Jerusalem, the participants met with a representative of ICHAD to learn about housing demolishions, walked through the Old City reaching the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, visited Mt. of Olives, and had the chance to meet and discuss with Bishop Younan.  In the north, the group walked through a refugee camp in Nablus, and from there, prayed at the Church of Annunciation in Nazareth,  visited Tiberius, Capernaum, Cana and Haifa.
