Arbel, Precipice, and Packing Boxes

This morning some of more hardy folk rose early and climbed the cliffs of Arbel before breakfast.

After breakfast we visited Mount Precipice in Nazareth. We read from Luke 4 the story of Jesus in the synagogue of Nazareth. Also, Isaiah 11 refers to a shoot, or nezer, from Jesse. This seems to be why the NT refers to prophecy calling Jesus a Nazarene. We heard from a Palestinian Evangelical Christian about their work and growing congregation.

From there we went to a distribution site shared by multiple ministries. We packed boxes of supplies to be delivered to families.

This is the before picture. I didn’t take any during the packing as I was busy working. I didn’t take any of the packed boxes as I was too worn out from working.

Continue to pray God’s blessing and protection on this work. I am thankful for the opportunity to be here and to serve, even in a small way.
