Bethlehem and Yad Vasheem

We went into the Palestinian Authority's territory today and went to see the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem.  The place where Jesus was born is surrounded by three churches: Orthodox, Ethiopian, and Roman Catholic.  Bethlehem is always an interesting experience.  My heart goes out to the native Arab Christians who are quickly being overwhelmed with Muslims.

After a shopping spree in Bethlehem at an Arab Christian Store and lunch, we went to the holocaust memorial, Yad Vasheem.  Lord, may humanity never repeat such a horrible atrocity!!

Starbucks Bethlehem style!!

Wonderful dinner tonight at Christ Church.  Temps in the high 50's at night and upper 70's in the day.  Shalom from Jerusalem.
