SHQ in the Holy Land: Sunset

By Reagan Gonzalez

On Tuesday afternoon three of my classmates and I said our goodbyes to the group we have been traveling with for two weeks and took a taxi on the winding roads back to Nazareth. Today we will begin working with Fr. Nael, Rector of Christ Church in Nazareth. As we drove the landscape shifted from urban Jerusalem to agricultural fields filled with corn and cotton. The more relaxed atmosphere of Nazareth was a welcome home coming to our tired bodies, worn out from all the joys and exhaustion that pilgrimage brings. We watched the sunset from the terrace roof at the Sisters of Nazareth convent and went to bed early looking forward to the new day to come.  – Reagan
