The siblings are gathering canned goods for a food drive at their church, only wanting to give away the food they don't like, when all of a sudden they end up in Jerusalem. They meet a group of boys and girls and learn that Jesus is staying in the house where the father of one of the boys works. It finally seems that the siblings will be able to meet Jesus! But with a weird darkness consuming the sky, soldiers stationed throughout the city, and some of Jesus' Apostles looking worried and sad, it seems that something is not right.
Why are there soldiers everywhere? Where is Jesus? Will the siblings ever meet Jesus, or are they too late again? Read on to discover the ultimate meaning of giving up something for others!
