Israel: Thursday, June 24th PM

After we left the church, we went to a deli just outside of the Old City and had schnitzel. It is a sesame breaded chicken sandwich which is *delicious!*

Next, we went to the Garden Tomb. The Garden Tomb is a believer based organization that shows what the tomb would have looked like. This tomb dated back to the time of Jesus and was located in a garden.

We looked inside the tomb, then had the Lord's supper. It was so much more peaceful than the Church of the Holy Sepulchre and was a great place to get refocused before we finished the afternoon.

When we left the Garden Tomb, we headed to the Garden of Gethsemane. We thought the garden closed at 5:00, so our entire group ran up the street to get there on time. It was pretty funny.Once again, there was a church built on the site. You could not walk through the garden, but you could see the olive trees throughout.

Our final stop of the day was the Mount of Olives. There were several times in the New Testament that Jesus taught from the Mount. It is also the place where the Lord will return (Zechariah 14:4-9).

We had an awesome worship service on top of the mountain before we headed back to Petah Tiqwa for the night.
