Where In The World Is The Times

Recently, a group of 40+ members and staff of Salem Baptist Church traveled to Israel for an in-depth "Step Into the Story" spiritual pilgrimage with Pastor Rick Statham, his wife Miriam, and their family. After arriving in Tel Aviv, the excited travelers visited many of Israel's ancient villages and ruins, sailed on the Sea of Galilee, visited snowy Jerusalem, traveled to Bethlehem, Masada, and the Dead Sea. The blustery weather did not dampen their spirits as they climbed to the top of Tel Megiddo, known for its historical, geographical, and theological importance where more than 26 layers of ruins have been excavated. The spectacular views of the Jezreel Valley were revered and enjoyed. Kneeling on the front row, holding the Times, are Karen and Lyn Pardue.
