This is group picture of us at the bottom of the Great Pyramid. There is a rope around the bottom of the pyramid so you can't get close to it, but a very nice guard let us climb over the rope and take some pictures. You can see how tall the rocks are, the one next to me is about as tall as I am.
We also had the opportunity to climb Mt. Sinai to see sunrise. We had to leave about 2am to start climbing. Mt. Sinai is close to 7,000 ft. We were able to ride camels a little more than half way up the mountain. Riding the camels was one of the highlights of our trip. It was very dark while we were riding the camels so we got to see the desert night sky. It was breathtaking. Being there made the Old Testament come alive. I could never explain the awesomeness of the whole thing. It was just amazing!
This is me on my camel. It was so fun to be able to ride a camel up the mountain.
The Sunrise from the top of Mt. Sinai!
Just a landscape picture after the sun came up.
Overall it was a great life changing trip. We had so much fun and I don't think that Matt and I will ever be the same because of this trip. I can't even begin to explain everything that we learned while we were there. We learned lessons about ourselves, other cultures and religions, we learned about God's Word, and learned more about God's heart for the nations.
