|It looks like my trip will be cut short. With the escalation in Lebanon, they aren't going to let foreigners back into the country so I'm going to leave from Damascus early next week, probably Tuesday. Right now, Syria is peaceful so we hit a few sites in the south of the country today including a Roman amphitheatre and the first building ever built specifically for Christian worship. We also met the Bishop of Horan, an incredible man who turned down an assignment in Australia to work in Syria's poorest area.
I will see you all sooner than expected, but don't worry, I am in no danger.
