These pictures were taken in August, 2004 in the area of the baptismal site established on the Jordan River in Israel near where experts believe Jesus was baptised by John the Baptist. I was surprised at how green and lush the area was, even in the scorching heat of the season. Some members of our church were among a small group of tourists back in the area for the first time since September 11, 2001. Most of us chose to re-dedicate and recommit our lives and service to Christ through a ceremonial baptismal service there.
I plan to return someday.
