As we travelled from Wadi Rum Desert to the Dead Sea, we were fortunate to be able to stop and visit Bethany. This is the site where Jesus was baptised by John the Baptist. It was pretty busy on the Israeli side of the River Jordan with baptisms taking place but the Jordan side was quieter. We just dipped our toes in the water but the girls and I are keen that next time we visit we go to Israel and coincide it with their First Communion.
