Pilgrimage Update

by Steve Ray on April 8, 2008

We are having a great time in Jerusalem. Everyone is doing fine and having a wonderful time. We've been to the Mount of Olives and Mount Zion, Gethsemane, the Western Wall, the Upper Room. We had a private meeting with the Bishop of Jerusalem, ate great food everywhere.

We led Jim Caviezel with our group along the Via Dolorosa for Mass in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre (great showing Jesus where he carried his cross :-), ate dinner and danced in Bethlehem, and much much more.

We have one day left and I will try to upload the last few days tomorrow. I am having technical difficulties with YouTube and the internet — it says it will take 300 minutes to upload an 8 minute video. I will try again tomorrow. I have them all made for Day 5, 6, and 7 — I just need the internet to cooperate so I can upload them for your enjoyment.

I’m so glad everyone is having a great time!
It does not surprise me that “Jesus” found you, but to have you show him the way…He didn’t have to correct you anywhere, did he? Give any extra tidbits of information? :)

Thank you again for giving us videos to watch of your trip. It looks like an amazing time! :)

Please say “Hi” to Pat McDonald for me, and let her know I am praying for her and her pilgrimage.

God bless you all!! :)

My parents are hanging out w/ you, T. Tomeo, AND Jim Caviezel while getting to experience the Bible in a whole new way!?! Not fair. Actually I’m very excited to hear all about it and sad everyday I don’t see a new video (I’ve looked forward to it everyday) There is just no way w/ an eight year old, a 4 year old, and an 8 month old I could make the trip (plus I homeschool). If your still doing this pilgrimage stuff in 10 years – I might get to go. Until then I’ll have to “settle” for my parents (Stropki’s) stories and the Footprints of God series. (Which by the way are great). Thank you for your work for our Lord!
May God Bless all the pilgrims w/ a safe return home. We are praying for all of you!

I am not sure to understand.
You are in Jerusalem right now?
And Mr.James Caviezel is there… with you?

STEVE RAY HERE: Yes, I led Jim along the Via Dolorosa (Stations of the Cross) in Jerusalem and to Mass at the Holy Sepulchre. He also gave a talk to my group.
