A very tired group of pilgrims were overjoyed to see the lights of the Biblical city of Jericho this evening! We touched down in Amman about 2:10pm local time today. Hooray! After spending a considerable amount of time in Security lines--both at the Airport and at the Israeli border--we finally arrived at the Intercontinental Hotel in Jericho. We found our rooms and were treated to a "Welcome" dinner at 7:30pm. Most have gone to bed, but we will collect our thoughts and our pictures and begin posting them here tomorrow.
For our followers, please be aware that we are 8 hours AHEAD of you and we expect daily posts to happen in the afternoons by US time. We will begin posting pictures as soon as we can get the right connections going! :-)
As this trip goes on we will be giving everyone a chance to post their thoughts and reflections. In the meantime, thank you for your prayers--keep 'em coming!
