October 19, 2013: JERUSALEM SHEIKH HUSSEIN BRIDGE AMMAN AIRPORT DUBAI

 We woke up at around 4:30 in the morning; prepared everything for our travel to Amman, Jordan. Check out from the Commodore Hotel after an early breakfast was served at 5:15AM. Departed at around 6AM for the border of Israel and crossed once more the Sheikh Hussein Bridge to Amman, Jordan. After crossing the Bridge, we passed through immigration and customs formalities of Israel at around 7:52AM and finished everything at around 8:55AM.

While on our way to the boarder of Israel and Jordan we prayed the holy rosary, sharing of experiences of pilgrimage were being done. We, at the same, summarized the pilgrimage experiences through the four (4) groups of Holy Rosary Mysteries.

While waiting for our turn to enter the Immigration of Israel, Bible passages were given and I got this one: “Abba, all things are possible for you: take this cup from me. Yet not what I want, but what you want,” (Mark 14:36). I didn’t like what our tour guide did but I got this passage. God’s will must be followed no matter what because He knows more than me.

A security person checked our passport before we rode the bus. We then proceeded to Amman, Jordan and the security personnel of the Jordanian government at a check point checked our passport again. Adam, our tour guide from Amman, Jordan, collected our passports and he was ahead of us for the processing at the Jordan Immigration.
