Malta Report - Day 5 - Evening

After prayer-walking in Mtarfa, we traveled over to it's sister neighborhood, Mdina for lunch and sightseeing. We first went to the castle in The city and looked over the city wall at most of Malta.

We grabbed our lunch and made our way over to St. Paul's Grotto, and underground dwelling where it is traditionally believed that Paul spent his three months when he was on the Island.

We next walked over to St. Agitha's Catacombs and took a quick (15 minute) tour of the ancient underground church. We were able to see Christian artwork that dates to the 4th century. Sadly, since cameras were not allowed, I have no photos of the work (you can click here to see photos of the catacombs)

After the catacombs, we went to Earls apartment for fellowship.

During the early evening, we drove to another place to have a Bible study with the Arabic church of Malta. This church is full of Arabic speaking Christians from the middle east. Christians from countries such as Jordan and places in North Africa were there and we talked about Forgiveness from Luke 7. Because of the delicate security nature of those in attendance, I will not post any photos of the Arabic Christians.

To close out the night, we caught dinner at Chick King, and knew it was time for bed when Earl Camic performed his infamous "Napkin Head" impersonation.
