Barb is... BACK!
I'm back in the office and Pastor Rich has asked me to share a few photos with you from my recent trip to Israel. The problem is WHICH of my 1200 photos to share!
It was a wonderful (aka tiring) trip and I appreciate your prayers for our safety. We felt safe at all times. I will be taking part in a presentation at my church this Sunday evening at 5:00 p.m. as we share our experiences.
