Today is January 17 but we really started our day on January 16 back in Alabama. We left the house about 0730 in the morning and from there we went to Pensacola airport then to JFK and then finally we ended up in Tel Aviv. We did not get into Tel Aviv until about 4:30 PM and that was only because we had an hour and a half early arrival due to some very strong tailwinds. From there we went through customs, very low-key very laid-back not a problem. We got on our bus after we got through customs and took the bus all up to Tiberius to stay at the Caesar Hotel. There are four buses for the entire group of 40 people on each bus. So we got to the hotel in Tiberias and got checked in. As mentioned, earlier we had about 42 people on our bus and about 11 of them from our church in Fairhope. After we got checked in, we then went and got supper in the hotel restaurant. Spent a little bit of time talking to Joe Bullington tonight about what we are going to do tomorrow so I could get a list of scripture passages to read before we go on our trip. It will give me a heads up as to what we are going to be doing tomorrow.
