Holy Land Pilgrimage -- Day Nine

Perhaps the most meaningful day of the tour, we walked the 14 stations of the Via Dolorosa, meditating at each and ending at the Church of the Holy Sepulcher for mass. In the afternoon we visited Ein Kerem, where John the Baptist was born, to visit the Church of the Visitation. We drove to the Elah Valley where David fought Goliath and heard an encouraging talk from Jeff. We had a lovely farewell dinner in the town of Abu Gosh. The group traveling El Al headed for the airport and the rest will be boarding after a very short night.
