Today was the Sabbath so we worshiped and rested. It was great. The day started off at the Baptist church down the road. The worship was great and the sermon was good. I did not understand most of the songs but really enjoyed the spirit that filled that place. We were given little boxes that transmitted a translated version of the sermon but the battery on mine ran out only a few minutes into the Pastors message. I followed along on the power point and in my bible. The pastor was talking about Faith and mostly the faith of Abraham. He had some good points from what I could make out.

After church we went back to NETS for lunch. We had sandwiches and it was great. It is strange how a common food like a sandwich can taste so good after you have been without it for a week. There was a sweet time of fellowship, then a long period of using the Wi-Fi up at NETS to call home and send some emails. Then we all slowly made our way back to the hotel taking in the scenery of Nazareth one last time from atop the hill. Everyone did there own thing this afternoon. I spent sometime in prayer, then started reading a book.

Tonight we ate here at the hotel and then, headed down the street looking for some Gelato. We finally found a place that was open and everyone sat outside in the cool breeze visiting and laughing. I am amazed that just a few days ago I did not know these people at all and tonight we are true friends. This has been a great trip in so many ways and making eleven new friends has truly been one of the highlights for me. Tonight we pack and tomorrow we leave for Jerusalem with a few stops on the way.
