Thanks to the ABR ministry for helping deepen my understanding of the conquest.  I respect and admire your work, the evidence for the location of Ai is compelling, even if I am less than an Ai doctor.  Please know that you have  had a profound impact on the lives and studies of Christians who feel lead to learn and understand the place and time of biblical events.  Keep up the great work, I will surely keep reading, and maybe one day The Lord will even bless me with a chance to participate in a dig.
