Here are most (a good selection, but alas! Not nearly all!) of the places/things I’ve done in the last few weeks.  This will probably be my last post for the next two weeks as I will be in the Galilee!!  However, in addition to the photos and video below, I have uploaded a whole collection of videos from myself and others at the center here http://www.youtube.com/byuj2010#p/u Enjoy!!

  1. Kendel!!! Looks like you are having way too much fun. 🙂 Well good for you. That picture of Hallah bread looks so good! I just found a recipe and I’m going to try and make it… then I can experience a little bit of the holy land right here in Utah! I’ll let you know how it turns out. Love ya brother!

  2. I don’t know how, but I ended up on this page today and watched that video. We had such wonderful times. Life made so much more sense out there. It incredible to think of all the fantastic things those people have done in the last three years. Treasure, gold it is not.
