Update Wednesday,Thursday,Friday,Saturday Update

Well I guess it's about time that We update this blog.

Wed. 3/5/14
 We left as a group to tour Yad Veshem -(Holacaust Museum) this was a self guided audio tour. As we toured, the visual graphics left many with a new and better understanding of what was done to the Jewish people, and any other person that stood in the way of Hilter's plan to have a supreme race.
 We were not allowed to take any picture or video in the Museum, so what was seen will be in our hearts forever.
   After the tour we gathered together for some lunch in tha cafateria and then proceeded to go to visit a home for children that have been removed from their homes do to various reasons.
  We were introduced to the kids and then went outside to a courtyard to play soccor, basketball, and the toss the balls around that we took along for them, soon WE were tired out and the Pizza arrived.
We had olive,corn,mushroom and plain cheese Pizza (thank God for just plain). And what brings a smile to a kids face but...... candy. We brought a bunch with us from back home.
  As the night wound down we all had a chance to share a few words and the kids did to they were all very thankful for the pizza and candy but mostly for the time that was spent with them to the point that we were invited back and they would cook for us.Sorry no pictures where aloud to be taken inside

Thursday 3/6/14
 We arose early to start our day visiting the Holy sites. We took taxi's thru the old city to the Mount of Olives were we met our tour guide Ayreell.

The Great Feast

After the packaging of food on Tuesday

We traveled to a banquet hall to serve survivors of the Holocaust. What an awesome time we had even with the language barrier we shared a meal and fellowship together.

We all had a chance to share a few words to the group about where we are from and why we are here. All we interpreted by Maxeem our guide for the day.
