When was this? Our family lived in Jerusalem for 8 years, and we were often in
Bethlehem and Beit Sahour. Nowadays, Shepherds' Field has been overcome by
a Jewish settlement, and there is a huge wall dividing Bethlehem from Jerusalem.
The holy views of the town of the Savior's birth that we enjoyed during
our many forays to Shepherds' Field are now impossible to achieve. We were
there 1983 to 1991.
