The last time I posted was a few days ago. If you’re not following me on social media or on this page I created for those who don’t care too much for social media, you’re not getting the daily, regular updates and images from my trip.
Blogging takes time and effort, and I have not had much of that left at the end of every day.
But BOY, my heart–and hard drive–is FULL of images and stories to tell you.
For now, a brief image journey.
Monday, April 13th, we visited the Citadel in Amman. Lots of ruins. Great views.
Then we travelled to visit Our Lady of the Mount, a small church where Abouna (Father) Hugo–from Argentina–is doing amazing work ministering to his flock, Muslims and Christians. The church has the most amazing icons of the Mysteries of the Rosary and a beautiful statue of the Blessed Mother and baby Jesus.
Tuesday, April 14th, was an amazing day of reuniting with dear friends. I was blessed to see Rustom Mhkjian again and get an amazing tour of Bethany Beyond the Jordan. This man is not only brilliant, but he is adorable!
And the Catholic Church, still under construction, but which will be the biggest Catholic Church in the Middle East once it’s done!
This place is just amazing.
We visited Madaba, where we saw the 6th century mosaic map of the Holy Land inside of the Greek orthodox Church of St George.
Then, we climbed to Mount Nebo, where I met Father Fergus Clarke, yet again. I’ve been blessed to see this man three times in my life. What are the odds I’ll get a fourth? Or fifth? Pray for it, will you? He is awesome.
And then there’s that view…
Theres so much more to tell you about, like what happened on Wednesday and Thursday! We went to PETRA! And today, we’re going to Mukawir, where John the Baptist was martyred!
But for now, I’m off to breakfast.
I am praying for you all every step of the way, kids! Keep praying for me and my companions. They are awesome!
