Galilee day 3!

Shalom!

Today we started off our morning with a beautiful boat ride across the Sea of Galilee! We took pictures and enjoyed singing hymns as we sailed across the Sea. We have been walking where Jesus walked and today we got to swim and sail where Jesus walked! We went and saw a boat that was found and dated back to Jesus’ time. It was interesting to learn about how they preserved the boat! We went to the Church of the Beatitudes! This is my personal favorite church to visit because it is the commemoration to the sermon on the mount! It was cool to sit up in the garden and read The Beatitudes! We finished the day up by visiting The town of Capharnaum, which was beautiful!

Today was one of my favorite days of the two week course! We really focused in on the teachings of Jesus and it was such an amazing experience to be here and see these places.
