Hey, Grace’rs,

Greetings from Israel! We have one day left in Jerusalem then fly out at 1 am Friday morning arriving in PHX Friday evening after 30 hours of travel time (how does that work?). If you haven’t seen the pics we’ve been sending you can see them here:

This weekend, as we continue our series on the Lord’s Prayer, we’ll focus on God’s promise to you in the words: Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Families with last names starting with S-Z have the food table this weekend.
