A thought came to my mind (propably the Holy Ghost) about a week ago, if I could read one chapter a day until easter and then on Easter read about the holiday. So I looked in the topical guide looked at all the scriptures and found out that there is a chapter on the Resurrection in each of the four gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. It was about a week ago so there was like 81 days til Easter and there were 84 chapters other than the 4 in each of the gospels. So I am caught up in my reading and I have read the three extra chapters and am now reading one chapter a night after I write in my journal. (when I get to the chapters on Easter in each of the gospels I will skip over them)
I got the oppurtunity to go on a fieldtrip to Ne Gev with the students, it was really fun and interesting, the only problem though is that it was freezing...in the desert.
Then we went to the Ben Gurion tomb place with an amazing over look. Ben Gurion was the first prime minister of Israel and was seen as the father of Israel, just like George Washington in America. It was a gorgeous view.
First we went to Lakiyah, which was a Bedouin weaving place
were they showed us how they weaved and talked about their lifestyle

|Talking during the presentation... uh-oh|
|The Herbal Tea that they gave to us, it was pretty interesting tasting|
Then we went to Tel Arad, which was a Canaanite and Israelite City, and it was really cool, on the lower part it was a Canaanite city and then on top of the hill was an Israelite fortress.

About ten days ago the new group of students made the long journey to the Holy land, and i cannot get away from them, I have hung out with them every single night that they have been here. I am so happy that they are here and they helped me get over my hunger for students.

I love Sarah Bradshaw and Bryson, and Maddie McCann(Dah!)
