I don’t have the words to describe what going to Jerusalem was like. The closest I can get is surreal. I kept thinking about how Malcom X came back changed when he took the trip to his holy land – and finally understood what Islam was really all about.
Well, it wasn’t quite like that for me because I wasn’t serious about my faith at that time in my life…but looking back, I know I am blessed to have literally walked where Jesus walked.
The tour guide said this was the garden of Gathsemane.
This was the church. That’s me praying. I was praying for the deployment to be over.
