Birthplace of Prophet Elijah, Jerash, Wrestling with Angels… 2nd Day in Jordan
by Steve Ray on February 13, 2017
A great first full day in Jordan. We started by visiting the birthplace of Elijah, then Mass at a church that just experienced a miracle of Mary (Fr. Conlon’s Homily), then a great authentic Jordanian lunch.
In the afternoon we visited to the exquisite Roman ruins of Jerash. Then we visited the Jabbok River where Jacob wrestled with God and I wrestled with Fr. James! Here Jacob and was given the new name of Israel. Enjoy!
