Our Extended Day in the West Bank

We had a great time entirely in the West Bank today.

Had a great meeting in Taybeh with Father Raed in the only entirely and intentionally Christian community in the West Bank.  (Note, they are Arab, Palestinian Christians, who school and nurse Arab, Palestinian Muslims - so their Christianity is not exclusive.)

We viewed the city of Shechem from the Heights of Mount Gerizim (Gerezim).

We played soccer (some of us) did - and sat for a cold Coca-Cola on the mount that was the Capital City of Israel, Samaria.

We celebrated a birthday of a trip participant - and it's not yet dinner time.  And our meals have been excellent so we look forward to dinner soon!

Another delightful day!
