When Those of Washington Came To Those of Ariel and Shiloh

Several US Congressmen and their wives visited Israel last week and devoted personal time to locations that spoke to them and their deep Christian belief in the Bible. They also wished to view the reality on the ground in Judea and Samaria.  They included Jim Jordan of Ohio, Louis Gohmert of Texas, Doug Lamborn of Colorado, Rep. John Fleming of Louisiana and Randy Forbes of Virginia.

I was privileged to be part of the effort to assure that their visit would be the best possible, along with many others* who assisted, and that the visitors gain the most while here.

Some photographs:-
