Five days and I leave for Israel. I’m excited about being with so many of my Jewish friends again. I have received only a few negative comments about going at this time. But, mostly, you all have been very encouraging. For those of you who have expressed concern, I can say that I will be living in Jerusalem which is currently south of the problem areas. I will be spending time in what the media calls “The West Bank” (the man I will be working with lives in a community there). However, I don’t see any problem with the area I will be going to.
I want to thank all of you for the “comments” to this blog. I enjoy reading whatever you have to say. Keep them coming!
Seth has decided to stay another 10 days in Brazil so I won’t be able to see him before I leave. I encouraged him to stay there since this kind of opportunity doesn’t come along very often. Blake will take me to the airport. I will miss everyone here, but 3 months isn’t all that long and I have a lot to do while I’m in Israel.
Mike Hackett, email me when you get the chance. I’d like to know how things are going in Saudi.
