Jordan 2000 - 2007

The original purpose for my going to Jordan was to do work with the Jordanian Ministry of Education. I was hired by USAID to provide guidance to ministry officials as they undertook the implementation of technology into their K-12 education system. I have made some wonderful friends and can say that Jordanians are some of the world's most hospitable and friendly people. From an archeological standpoint, Jordan has some of the most beautiful places to visit such as the Dead Sea, Jerash, Ajlun, Petra, Mt. Nebo, and the baptismal site of Jesus.

Petra 2007

Petra, located in Jordan, is considered one of the new Natural Wonders of the World. I have visited Petra at least 7 times and am still awed by this magnificent place.

Mt. Nebo October 2006

Mount Nebo is one of the most revered holy sites of Jordan, located 10 km west of the Roman Byzantine town of Madaba, for this is where Moses is supposedly buried. The site's association with the last days of Moses is described in moving words in Deuteromony (34:1-7). The episode of Balak and Balam (2:13-26) also took place here.
