Day eight began wih our drive into Egypt. We traveled through two country’s checkpoints in order to visit this ancient place. Once settled into the hotel, we ate dinner and slept for a couple hours. Half of our group woke at 2:30am to make the trek up Mt. Sinai for the sunrise. It did not disappoint! Traveling in Moses’ footsteps was humbling to say the least… The last 750 “steps” were the most difficult….but all 17 of us made it! Enjoy the pictures and come soon to do it yourself….if this isn’t on your bucket list, it should be!
Update….prayers for the Christian families in Sinai…..http:hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories/M/ML_EGYPT_CHRISTIANS?SITE=AP&SECTION=HOME&TEMPLATE=DEFAULT
