February, 2015 Tour – Day 2 – February 2
This afternoon we arrived in Israel. We flew in to the Ben Gurion Airport. Sun and 70 degree temperatures awaited us. After processing through Passport Control, we gathered our luggage before walking to our bus. We were greeted by our guide and driver. Loading up the bus, we drove to Jaffa along the Med Sea coastline. We walked through the alley-ways of Jaffa. We read Jonah 1 (Jonah) as well as Acts 9 & 10 (Peter, Simon the Tanner). The view of the Tel Aviv skyline was is picturesque from here.
Boarding the bus, we drove north through the Tel Aviv traffic to our first night’s hotel in Netanya. We checked in and enjoyed dinner together. Following an orientation meeting, a number in the group walked to the downtown area of Netanya as well as to the beach. The temperature was perfect.
We are all looking forward to our first full day here in Israel tomorrow.
