Tonight we spent the day in Bethlehem visiting members of the church and seeing the ministries they are involved with, including a daycare and a home for disabled children. More coming on these interactions later.
This evening, our hosts invited us for a very special barbecue dinner, which involves several people to make it work. The grill is made out of a converted hot water heater and built up out of concrete blocks. A fire is built inside out of olive wood chips, and when it is ready, the meat and potatoes are inserted inside and the entire grill, including the chimney, is sealed with a dough-like paste to keep any heat from escaping. After only 25 minutes, the entire meal is ready! We were all fascinating with this unique form of barbecuing. Enjoy this quick glimpse at how it’s made!
