Visit to Ein Karem

On November 18th, twelve women from Sabeel’s young women’s group went on a tour to Ein Karem. The tour guide was Ms. Rula Shubeita, a faithful friend of Sabeel, who was very generous with her time and knowledge of the sites. The group visited Mary’s Spring and the Visitation Church and had time to read and reflect on Luke 1:39-56. Then they went to the Church of John the Baptist, the Monastery of St. John in the Wilderness, and the Russian church nearby. The group is grateful for the wonderful spiritual experience they had.
