BYU Jerusalem

Here's a convenient little list of most of my BYU Jerusalem posts from the summer of 2013. It was an amazing, adventure-filled, HOT summer filled with a lot of unnecessary learning about archeology and way too much singing of hymns. At the same time, it was hands down one of the best summers of my life, and it was a great experience getting to explore almost the entire country of Israel.
