Project Peace delegation arrives in Jerusalem

Jerusalem

The Project Peace delegation led by Sr. Paulette  has arrived in Jerusalem!  Two members, Matt and Mary, are writing a travel blog at www.tiffinpalestine.tumblr.com 

Here is today’s post:

Wednesday, 9 p.m., Jerusalem. After a few hours of not knowing whether our Columbus-Newark flight was going to leave on time, we made it to Newark, boarded, and made it safely to Jerusalem. A couple of photos here indicate we are not in Ohio—tonight we had our first dinner together near the Damascus Gate of falafel, hummus, and desserts.

Wrapping up tonight many in the group noted how different and exotic the surroundings appear—from the call to prayer to absence of dogs. Strangely, we are expecting a very rare thunderstorm-in-May event tonight. Tomorrow, to the Tent of Nations and then on to Bethlehem. After 35 hours of travel, to bed.

Tuesday our group of 6 will be leaving Ohio for Jerusalem, Bethlehem, and Hebron to explore, serve, grow, and learn.  Thanks for visiting, and until Wednesday, peace.
