So we thought we would post a few pictures of what we do on Friday.... our Sabbath day. Because Friday is a holiday in Islam the Middle East has their weekends on Friday and Saturday and so Sunday is a normal work/school day. So we go to church on Friday. We’ve been part of the Amman branch for the summer, which consists of mostly expatriates working for government agencies and other companies, a number of Arab Christians, and for the summer half of the branch was BYU students. There is also a branch up North in Irbid which is made up mostly of Arabs. We went up there for a weekend to visit two weeks ago and had a great time. It’s been such a blessing to have the church as a place of refuge and to feel the spirit of the members here.
P.S. We leave for Israel/Palestine in two days!
