OK, wow. So much has happened, and I've been too busy doing it to write till now. Things are settling back down and Rayna is settling in for finals so I will do my best to get it all written. There may be some chronological errors and ommisions so please bear with me.
Let's go back a few steps to my last post. My Mom and Rick arrived in town and we went to Qumran to see the place where the Dead Sea Scrolls were written, hidden, and discovered. That was a WHILE ago. Rayna and I had one other big adventure with them before Mark and Kate Rodman arrived for about 10 or so days to travel Israel with my Mom and Rick. This blog now picks up with that adventure.
