A Taste of Honey- Day 5

Sunday was another eventful day in God’s land. After breakfast at our hotel by the Dead Sea, we headed north to Masada.

An incredible designing and engineering feat, Masada was Herod’s private, secluded palace. It was used as a place of refuge during the Roman invasion years later.


Our next stop was Engedi, the area David and his men stayed while on the run from Saul. We could feel what living water was and it’s essential presence in the desert— a powerful example of what Jesus is to us and what we are to be in this world.


Psalm 42:1 As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, O God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God.

Right after lunch, we took a really short hike into a palm grove to have a lesson about the aurora plant. In the extremely dry climate, it looks like it would be really good to eat— on the outside. But inside, it is full of poison.

The last stop was Qumran, the location of the Dead Sea Scrolls.


For the last part of the day, we traveled to our hotel. We were warmly welcomed by an incredible gentleman. I could try to describe the evening in pictures but it wouldn’t be fair. He treated us like royalty as he took us on one of the most interesting tours through the Old Testament that you could imagine. His love for God was so evident in his passion- which was passing on the story of Israel to future generations. After the tour, It was a glorious, quiet evening, filled with great conversations. A great ending to a very eventful day. We feel God’s presence here! Thank you for praying for us
