We had a busy day today seeing Bethlehem and getting some good bargains. We went to the Church of the Nativity, the site where Jesus was born. It is disappointing that they build a church or monument over everything here,but it is exciting to know that they are places and events from the Bible. We are the main attraction here in Beit Jala. Many people stop to see the team working and yell things like “nice wall” or “good job”. One man even stopped with his ice cream truck and brought out a box of ice cream novelties for the team. It was 96 degrees today and very dry. We are drinking, drinking, drinking! We hope to go to the Dead Sea next week. We are enjoying doing our devotions on the roof of the school. It is much cooler up there and the sunsets are beautiful during devos. We can hardly believe there is only two weeks left here. We have so much we want to get done for the school. They could use a team for the next 10 years so there is lots to be done. We plan to go to church with the Bethlehem team on Sunday and have lunch with them.
