Some of you may have heard that I’ll be going with a group of travelers to Israel, Palestine, and Jordan to complete the trip I was leading in March of 2020 when COVID 19 forced the closure of Israeli and Palestinian borders. I said then that one day we’d finish but I didn’t realize it would be two years! So tomorrow we leave–and the preparations have been a journey in themselves. We’ve had our vaccinations, negative COVID tests, filled out the entry forms for Israel, and have made appointments for another COVID test as soon as we arrive. Then we head for quarantine at a hotel in Netanya to wait for our negative results.
I do want you to know that the meditations will keep coming while I’m away, and I’ll also be doing a daily blog on www.desertgraces.com. If you want you can sign up and follow along–it’ll come to you at your email address. Elaine and I return on March 24 and I certainly invite your prayers!
