Israel 2008 - Day 4

Day 4: This is Johnny's day to take pictures and blog the news of the day!  Pic. #1:  Let me introduce you to Linda and Buddy Wood.  They became our friends through Scott and Millie.  Buddy owns a large shrimping business in St. Joe, Fl. and through the years we have really come to love them.

Pic. #2:
It was around the year of Johnny's birth that some of the Dead Sea Scrolls were found in cave #4.  these continue to serve as God's way of authenticating His word.  This cave is located in the community of Qumran.  Pic. #3:  Cheryl, Sandy and Kim are three of the Cistren that are traveling with us to the Holy Land.  On an earlier trip here, I asked the question:  "If the men had been the ones to retrieve the water, would it have been called the brethren?"!  Pic. #4: When Johnny married them not long ago, they were both dressed in white.  How do you like their black mud suits in the Dead Sea? Brad and Joy Wilson are one fine couple.   Pic. #5:  Roy and Sue Miller have meant a great deal to us for over 21 years now.  Roy was on the pulpit committee that called us to FBCW.  Note the number 7 on the door which reminds me of why our ministry has been so encouraging all these years.  Roy and Sue are #7s in our book which speaks of perfection and maturity.  This is what makes Woodstock so great!  Pic. #6:  Allen Taylor serves as our minister of education.  No one in the SBC has a greater love, knowledge and passion for Bible Study.  What a joy it is serving with this dear brother.
