Rome-ward Bound

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.
