Fifty Camels

Roomate bonding!

These are my wonderful roommates and I Saturday afternoon at the Garden of Gethsemene.
Sunday we went to the YMCA bell tower where our branch president plays the bells each week. We were able to play them, too. Jessica and I played "God Speed the Right" for all of Jerusalem to hear. Maybe we can't proselyte here, but our hymns can ring out every Sunday!

We also went to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, (believed by many to be the site of Christ's burial place and resurrection), saw some art galleries and did some shopping. 
Every shop keeper tries to flatter us. As we walked away, one called out, "Hey, mormon! You dropped something." We turned around, and he pointed to the ground and said, "You dropped my heart." Or, they say, "Hey, mormon! Special price for you." Or, they offer 50 camels to be their wife. Ha. I've always wanted 50 camels...

I live for our wonderful weekends.

  1. Don't forget--just south of the Garden of Gethsemane is the Christian cemetery where I want to be buried. Why don't you find out if they have any plots for sale and the price. And about the camels--the goat pen is far too small!
