Passing along the modern city of Amman—and the ancient home of the Ammonites—continue to Mt. Nebo, and view as Moses did when he looked across the valley to the Promised Land. Continue to Umm ar-Rassas, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, where the ancient St. Stephen’s Church holds magnificent mosaics. Drive along the ancient King’s Highway, pass through the ancient lands of Moab, the land that Ruth, great-grandmother of David and ancestor of our Lord, forsook. We stop at Wadi Mujib to view the border between Moab and Edom. After dinner, we will hear from the workers at the Wadi Musa Baptist Clinic. Overnight in Petra. (B,D)
