Where John Baptized Jesus

Today we saw the location we enjoyed a quiet but stirring communion where Elija ascended into Heaven, where Joshua lead Israel across the Jordan, and where Jesus was Baptized by John. I am so incredibly grateful to the Jordan Tourism Board for this once in a lifetime opportunity . It is my prayer that this blog will encourage readers to visit this amazing country and enjoy the gracious hospitality of the Jordanian people. Shokran Gazillan.
