The only place I'd really like to travel to from America is Israel. I've watched sermons preached on TV from Israel, and like you, I had a picture in my mind of what it would be like to go there. Thank you for this well written record of your own experience that helps to balance my expectations. I thouroughly enjoyed this. You described it so well that I felt I was there with you. And to post this account of your trip to Bethlehem in particular at this time of year is a special treat. Thank you.

Thank you for the insightful look into the city of Bethlehem. Truly a broken place. This story would have been interesting with some dialogue to break up the telling and add some emotion and feeling to the narrative. Thank you for giving us a different view of the Bethlehem we imagine from the Bible story.

I live in a country nearby to Israel and your descriptions are very accurate and familiar; descriptive language well done and you help me to see the scenes you portray! A great depiction of a not so silent Bethlehem, kind of chaotic and broken a bit compared to what we think about as we consider the Bethlehem of our natiivty scenes. Very well done, thank you!
Thanks for relating what is truly happening there. It helps us to remember that He, our Lord now lives in us and so we pray for Bethlehem. Good job!

Thanks for taking us with you on an Israel adventure many would like to have. The finding peace message was well-crafted.
