Slept on the ground last night in a tent in the desert. What fun! We rode camels, had a bonfire, watched the stars come out, and enjoyed some good laughs.
Our overnight was at a site is known as Kfar HaNokdim (“village of the shepherds”) and is located in the Negev, not far from Arad, Israel.
This group of students from the ministry residency program of Johnson University has been great!
Our residents enjoyed a bedouin-style big-pan feast of various meats, couscous, and hummus. We topped it off with sweets and coffee.
