The Insight for Living Ministries Pre-Tour to Israel enjoyed its first day in Rome, Italy, today! We have two buses filled with sleepy, but excited pilgrims—wide-eyed at the wonders of this ancient city!
On this first, full day of touring we saw many of Rome’s typical tourist spots:
- The Aurelian Walls
- The Pyramid of Caius Cestius
- Barberini Square
- Triton Fountain
- Via Veneto
But my favorite sites were the Tres Fontane Abbey and the Church of St. Paul Outside the Walls. These sites are where the Apostle Paul was martyred . . . and then buried.
What a model Paul was! Living his life fully for Jesus Christ and then giving his life for the name of his Lord.
