Also, I'm doing a couple of book signings for Father's Day this weekend:

June 18, 2010 - Father’s Day Book Signing

6:00-8:00 p.m. American Fork Seagull Book on 218 State Street, American Fork, UT. .

June 19, 2010 - Father’s Day Book Signing
12:00-2:00 p.m. Redwood Seagull Book on 1720 So. Redwood Road, SLC, UT.

More from Israel.

I took pictures of the signs in order to bookmark our locations. Also because many of them were unusual and not what you'd see in the USA.

This sign is posted as you leave Dormition Abbey--a church built over where it's believed Mary is buried.

This sign welcomes Christians to the Jordan River.

I thought this was the most interesting sign: Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem (located at the Garden Tomb)

This sign is posted outside the church that sits on the property of the Garden of Gethsemane. Notice at the top left hand corner, it says no halter tops or shorts allowed. My kids grumbled a bit about having to wear pants all of the time, but we also watched some tourists turned away at these sacred locations for wearing shorts.

This is a sign at the national park Tel Dan. It's a hotspot of previous military skirmishes between Syria and Israel because of the natural springs that are there.

This sign pretty much says it all. Most of the churches we went into had a sign similar to this. From the Church (Basilica) of the Annunciation in Nazareth, which I must say, was the most beautiful church I saw in Israel. These photos don't do it justice. It takes your breath away.

I like all the different signs. Especially Pray for Peace for Jerusalem.

I am so glad you're writing "Ammon". I was hoping you would, after reading "Alma, The Younger". I am also enjoying your report on Israel.

I loved that sign, too, Angie.

Ines, Ammon seemed like a natural transition. Don't know about after that though ;)
