Finding Elijah’s Brook Cherith in Gilead Jordan

by Steve Ray on February 12, 2017

IMG_6600Today we embarked on an adventure to find the place where Elijah was fed by ravens at Brook Cherith. You can read 1 King’s 17:1-7 for the story.

In Arabic the river is named Wadi el-Yubis. It is up north in Jordan in the Gilead mountains not far from Elijah’s hometown of Tishbe (which we also found).

The Wadi Cherith is way out of the way and we had a good challenge to find it. Even our lifetime Christian Jordanian guide did not know where this was.

I hope you’ll enjoy seeing what we did today in preparation for our next Footprints of God movie on Elijah-Elisha. It will be shot in June in Jordan, Israel and Egypt  we will have it finished by the end of this year  pray for us!
