Happy Easter Friends and Family!

Hello from Nazareth! I hope that everyone is enjoying the spring time weather in back home (where ever home is for YOU).  This morning the whole EMU community here- the EMU cross cultural group, Loren and Pat, Dave and Anna, Kevin- all rose early this morning to walk to Mt. Precipice (sp?- Luke 4:29) to watch the sunrise.  As one can imagine the sunrise which was welcomed in by song, scripture and church bells ringing was breathtaking.  To top off the morning Janet (Linford, our leader’s wife) had a surprise for the group- chocolate eggs! Therefore, on the top of Mt. Precipice we had our own Easter egg hunt German style.  For the past several days we’ve had the opportunity to take a break, relax and enjoy one of our last weeks here in Israel.  Our time has been spent journaling, playing tons of card games, sharing stories with each other and occasionally writing some silly songs on guitar.

Shalom! Peace! Salaam!

He Has Risen Indeed!
