Day 3 in Israel

Bethlehem Bible College choir with us at the Bethlehem Peace center
Jesus' birthplace

The Shepherd's Church - where we sang



The Shepherd's field - if you look closely there are sheep with a shepherd (above closely)


Another beautiful day in the Holy Land! We saw the shepherd's fields and church, church of the nativity, Jesus, birthplace, and did a fantastic concert with the Bethlehem Bible College Choir at the Bethlehem Peace Center right beside the birthplace of Christ. They sang 4 songs with us in Arabic, 2 of them were traditional middle eastern sounding songs and the others were You Are Good and Amazing Grace My Chains are Gone. The room was packed out and people were standing in the doorways and out into the halls. We also sang with our vocal team like we do in the states and played a couple of concert pieces. I don't know how to explain how it feels to have had the opportunity to minister to citizens of Bethlehem within sight of Jesus' birthplace, it's almost surreal!

videoI added this for a bonus - 35 music majors singing in the Shepherd's church - it had amazing accoustics - it sounded like 200!

Wow!!! Tell Dan Thank You for sharing his pictures and video with us. I have always wanted to go to Israel. I get goosebumps just looking at the pictures. I can't imagine what it's like being there. Give Lydia a hug from Aunt Von.
