Faith of a mustard seed.

Walking home from the Old City we stopped for a bible teaching moment. Sarah has a palm full of mustard seed. They all came from one little seed pod. We all took turns popping open the pods to collect the seeds in our palms. Jesus used these seeds to teach of the power of faith and how the Kingdom of God will grow.

Will has been feeling much better this week and has attended all three days of pre-school at Augusta Victoria. Marie often stays and helps out which is good for some of the more traumatized younger children at the school who find Marie's lap comforting, her games fun and her songs entertaining. Years of expereince from service in the nursey at church are being put to good use.

This Friday we will walk with all of the students down to the Western (Wailing) Wall to experience Friday evening prayers at the beginning of the Jewish Sabbath.

  1. Thanks for the posting and the pictures. I didn't have enough sense to get pictures of these things when we were there many years ago.
