By now you will have heard of a suicide bomber in Jerusalem today (Wednesday). We were scouting sites for David/Solomon in the West Bank and had just driven throuth French Hill in East Jerusalem and stopped for lunch. Sitting at the table we heard a BOOM followed by hundreds of sirens. We thank God we had left the intersection.

Other than that things are going well and we are getting a lot of research done. Today we visited Shiloh, Bethel and other important biblical sites in the West Bank. Tomorrow local sites in Jerusalem. On Friday we visit the Wilderness of Ziph, the Cave of Addulam. Monday we try to get into Bethlehem and then to Hebron. I will try to add more and keep our trip up to date on this Blog.  Bye for now. Steve Ray
