Eretz Israel Dispatches

Travelling from Bluesky to Bethlehem takes a while. We (the Young family) received an opportunity to experience the places where the Bible was written and about which the Bible writes during the summer of 2022. We couldn’t bring the church with us, so we wanted to leave a little taste of the places we’re going. (Plus, it shows we’re still thinking of y’all.)

Enjoy some spontaneous, unedited “home” videos along the way as we travel ארץ ישראל (eretz Israel—”The land of Israel”)!
