I'm sitting in the Ataturk International Airport, Istanbul after a very successful 2012 Book of Revelation Prophecy Tour.Unfortunately I don't have the bandwidth necessary to upload photos, but I'll try to update this post when I return home this weekend. We have been assured that our flight to New York JFK will arrive without a glitch so I don't anticipate any problems. That's all for now…ok, maybe just one photo. Caesarea by the Sea, our last stop of the tour. ----- Caesarea01HDR
