Of course, no trip to the Holy Land is complete without a boat ride on the Sea of Galilee. Thinking of floating on the same body of water where our Lord walked on the water and calmed the storm is pretty amazing. So, we took our boat ride. We got to hear a short sermon and sing some songs floating on the Sea of Galilee.
There was a very unusual and unique thing about our boat and our Captain Daniel Carmel. The vast majority of boats on the Sea of Galilee are fun by Jewish crews and a Jewish Captain. Daniel and his crew are actually the only Christian boat and Captain on the Sea taking tourists out. Daniel had been out five years, listening to The Work preached every day of tourist season, when he finally responded and came to Christ. He is an amazing singer, also, and led us in some great praise songs during our excursion.
