Celebrating 100,000 visitors; a gift for you

Thanks for visiting Ferrell’s Travel Blog. This afternoon our Blog Stats moved above 100,000. I think when we began the blog we only had in mind that families of some of our tour members could follow our route of travel. Then I began to write about other places I had visited. Well, here we are today.

As my wife and I looked at the stats I said, “Well, we have reached a millstone, if not a milestone.” She said, “Yes, it is a millstone.” I must admit it has become addictive. But when I realize that I am reaching a large number of people each day/week/month with something that may be beneficial in Bible study and teaching, I am delighted.

I want to share a gift that may be of benefit to those who use PowerPoint presentations in teaching. During the life of the blog, more people have visited our pages on the Euphrates River than any other. Here is a photo of the Euphrates at Birecik, Turkey.

The Euphrates is the largest, longest and most important river of Western Asia. It is nearly 1800 miles long and was the northeastern boundary of the land promised to Abraham (Gen. 15:18). The empires of Assyria and Babylon, the greatest enemies of Israel, were east of the Euphrates. The Old Testament prophets often put the Euphrates by metonomy for these countries to designate the place from which the punishment of God would come (Isa. 7:20; 8:7; Jer. 46:10). For more information on the Euphrates River read the article here.
