Though her family has traveled to the Middle East many times, Isabelle had the privilege of visiting the Jordan River for the first time. Isabelle was quite moved by this experience. "It was a wonderful experience; Jesus had walked those paths, He was baptized there, and I felt it. I felt his presence there more than any place I had ever been to in my life."
Despite the incredible feeling of being in such a special place, IsabelleI wasn't as fond of the heat. "I couldn't fathom how the Israelites lived in that heat; I was sweating profusely and drinking enough water to satisfy dozens, AC and all!"
