From Jerusalem: Day 8
Day 7. We went to the church of the Nativity. It was discovered after 313 when Constantine declared the empire Chrisitan and sent his mother Helen to the Holy Land to discover the site of Jesus' birth.
Then we visited the Bethlehem Bible College. We were awed at the way brothers Alex (pastor) and Bershwar (founder and president) Awad told their own story about the mother becoming a Christian, describing their experience as Palestinian Arab Christians and their father was killed in the war of Independence in 1948. It was sobering, and I'm glad we went.
