Sunday morning, at about 2am, we started the ascend of (what we think is) Mount Sinai. It was a long walk – almost 4 hours to the top (I took a camel a third of the way, ’cause my knee was a bit too sore) – but definitely worth it.
We had some lovely Bedouin boys guiding us – they couldn’t have been older than 16 or 17 – and they often ran ahead with only thongs on their feet. After 2 1/2 hours of walking we climbed the 750 or so steps (I lost count at 115 or so), and sat together on the crevice watching the sun rise. It was amazing.
Our God is an awesome God.
