This year has flown past. It began inauspiciously. It has ended in a much different way than I ever imagined. This year I have traveled so much and all of it I certainly didn't plan on in January. First I visited Canada and a new niece. Then I visited Bolivia on a mission trip. Then I moved and began looking for a job thinking my traveling for the year was complete.
And then one weekend I had this amazing offer:
One month in Israel.
Volunteering at an archeology dig on the Sea of Galilee.
Room and board paid.
Did I want to go?
YES I wanted to go!
So here I am preparing for a month in Israel. During the day I will get my fingers in the dirt and dig into the past of Israel in the town Mary Magdala was from. Weekends and evenings I will have chances to explore the countryside and learn about the present day culture.
This is going to be an amazing journey.
