Merry Christmas from Jerusalem!

We arrived in Jerusalem on just before Christmas! As the whole clan drove our three rental cars up the big hill towards Jerusalem and caught first sight of the Old City, Priscilla burst out singing with the words, “Jerusalem! Jerusalem! Lift up your gates and sing, Hosanna in the highest! Hosanna to your King!” Old City Jerusalem was decked out with lights for Christmas season even though most Israeli’s don’t celebrate either Christmas or our New Year. Their Hanukkah was much earlier this year and their new year starts in September, but they seem to love tourists and...

Galilee Visit

In just the past two days since our last post, so much has happened I feel I must post a few more pictures just to keep up. It has been so much fun!   We really have enjoyed starting out our time in Israel right where Jesus started the majority of his life–In the Galilee region. This sunset over the Sea of Galilee was just gorgeous.   Synagogue At Capernaum:   What we believe is a first century synagogue could very well have been the one that Jesus gave his message about being the bread of life. It was in Capernaum that he called Matthew to be his disciples, told Peter to...

Off to Israel

The dream of any person who has a love for Scripture is to travel to the land where it took place and much of it was first documented. We have long dreamed of doing so, but only recently through some creative planning and thrifty budgeting we are able to actually chart out our own course on a trip of a life-time with fourteen of the Wallers. (Dad, Mom, four brothers (one is married with a daughter) and four sisters. Pulling out of our home in Chicago, the weather was quite different from where we were headed. It started out with homemade sandwiches eaten on the 20 minute ride to the...

Happy Thanksgiving!

The Thanksgiving season is not over. It is just the launching to the rest of the year of being thankful for what God and others have done to benefit our lives. [youtube]http://youtu.be/CWRPgoItmN4[/youtube]Paul sure is growing and doing his best to learn how to walk. He is almost nine months old. While on our way to a graduation of some friends, we were able to stop by the Blue Bell Ice Cream Factory near Austin Texas. It was so much fun and quite yummy! Here we have a picture of the International Ministerial Institute that some of our friends were graduating from. It is one of the most...

Visiting D.C.+Josh & Anna Duggar

We have been wanting to visit Josh and Anna in their new home and see Marcus for quite some time, but it just did not seem to work out. Recently, when we had a free weekend, we made a dash for DC. We have spent a lot of hours on the road throughout the summer.  Josh Duggar has accepted his new position with Family Research Council and did a fantastic job working behind the scenes to bring the Value Voter Summit to us with great success. Great work Josh and team! Part of the perk of going was seeing key conservative leaders who have been willing to stand for values we hold dear, such as...
