Day Seven, Jan 26

Today we experienced the variant scenery of the Negev Desert with a stop at the Tomb of David Ben Gurion for a teaching by Jeff about the Children of Israel during the period of the Wilderness Wanderings. Next we walked through the natural gorge of Ein Ovdat, followed by a visit to ancient city of Ovdat stationed on the spice route, where we had Mass in the ruins of a Byzantine church. After lunch we stopped at Tel Be'er Sheva before heading toward Jerusalem.
