Janet and I are in Nazareth, as I’ve already shared, and right now we are at the pre-wedding party of 1,000 people — family and friends of the bride and grooms family. We are honored to be guests.
The groom’s family puts on this huge party to welcome the family and friends of the bride (including us). Amer and his family had hosted a party for the groom’s family a few days earlier.
Families are very involved in the weddings to a degree unknown in the West. No wonder divorce and premarital sex is virtually unknown here.
I am posting lots of pictures and videos to http://www.facebook.com/jerusalemjones
Enjoy! If you gone with us on pilgrimage you will enjoy seeing Amer and his family. Pass it on!
