Day 3: Mt. Arbel, Sea of Galilee, Mt. of Beatitudes, Tabga, & Capernaum

Today was literally one of the best days of my life! I’m not kidding. Our morning started off with a 2-3ish hour hike/climb up and down a mountain (Mt. Arbel) in Galilee (where Jesus called His first disciples and where He restored Peter). It was literally one of the coolest and most fun things I’ve ever done. I will definitely be taking up rock climbing more seriously when I get back home. I loved every minute of it, and it was absolutely beautiful.

Then on to the Sea of Galilee.. Crazy that Jesus walked on this water! I tried, but it didn’t work.. IMG_8196

While walking back from Caparnaem, I ran into a friend I know from Memphis! How insane! We were both freaking out.. IMG_1690

Once again, I don’t eat food in this country.. Or at least it’s really hard for me to.. Sooo when we went to this DELICIOUS restaurant and there was grilled chicken, I (and my tummy) was ecstatic! And while we ate outside in the flawless weather, we enjoyed a nice view of the Sea of Galilee.. No big deal.. IMG_8238

Today was seriously perfect in every way. That night, we went to McDonalds.. I know, typical Americans.. I don’t eat it in America, but my tummy is so hungry here.. Haha. While there, I got to have a wonderful conversation with the wife of the leader of the trip, and it was just great. I’m so grateful for today & all the awesomeness it entailed.

Today we prayed specifically for Lebanon; please join us!
