Paul-Gordon Chandler - Mixing the soil of Jerusalem


- Paul-Gordon Chandler "Mixing the Soil of Jerusalem"

"Remove the sandals from your feet, for the place on which you are standing is holy ground." he said further, "Iam the God of your father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob." And Moses hid his face, for he was afraid to look at God.



(The Soil brought back from Jerusalem was mixed with the soil at the new church site.)
