Day 2 - Mount Nebo and the River Jordan
Mount Nebo, located in Jordan, is the place where Moses was granted a view of the Promised Land, then commanded by God not to enter it. We celebrated Mass in a Franciscan chapel, toured the grounds, and viewed artifacts from the Byzantine church and monastery located there.
Following that, we visited a shop that manufactures beautiful hand made pottery and wood crafts, employing women from the area who are able to produce these works despite physical disabilities.
We ended the day on the shores of the River Jordan, on the east bank (Jordanian side), and renewed our Baptismal Vows.
