In Arabic word for home/house is Beit (in Hebrew it is Beth). For the next year, beginning August 20th 2009, the Emmett family will be making their home at the BYU Jerusalem Center at the northern end of the Mt of Olives. Our home will be in a three room apartment on the fifth level of the Center seen with all of its arches at the top left of the above photo. Will will be attending pre-school at Augusta Victoria--the large square tower in the upper right.
Here is the view from our balcony
