Jerusalem Reunion

The Jerusalem Emmetts pulled into town late last night after getting up at 2:00 AM that morning to climb Mt. Sinai (we all made it!). This morning the kids slept in while I rendezvoused with Bob and Annie for breakfast at their hotel and a morning of touring with their tour group. Later that afternoon we all met up with them (minus Sarah who contracted pharoah's revenge on our last day in Egypt and thus stayed at home) at Pater Noster Church for an all too short visit before they had to leave for the airport. It was great to have them in town. Too bad we only over lapped for one day. Bob has great notes from his travels. His Sunday School Old Testament lessons should be all the better now.


  1. We just had a call from Bob that they are on their way home from the airport. You all, minus Sarah, looked healthy in front of the Lord's Prayer wall and we hope this continues in the future.

  2. It was sure great to see you. You all looked and sounded great. Sorry that Sarah was under the weather! Thanks for adjusting your schedule to get together. I was sure happy to see you and the family in the car chasing us down on an unplanned stop at the church on the Mt. of Olives. Also, Congrats to Joel for being the first Jerusalem Emmett to the top of Mt Sinai. That's quite an accomplishment!

  3. The Emetski extensive photo collection of Palestine did not seem to include a whole lotta lush locations. Looks like a great time.
