Josh and Will in Jerusalem

jucFor most of the month of January, Will and Josh have had the exciting opportunity to take a course at Jerusalem University College in Israel! They have been planning this trip for a very long time (as long as I have traveled at least!) so I know they were excited to finally make it to the university for a course on Historical and Cultural Settings. They had a lot of prep work to do before they left, which is how I learned about the course. Josh was constantly marking routes of different stories in the Bible on maps, using different colors and symbols. Before he even left, he said that it had changed his view of the events in the Old Testament. Just in the first week, they were able to tour the Old City, visit Hezekiah's Tunnel, Bethlehem, and Jericho. Christy and I are praying daily for their safe return, and although we miss them lots, we are so excited for this chance for them to be "students" again and spend all day studying--and excited that it's not us having to take the exams! :)
