The Emmett Home

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
The eight level of the center with access to the chapel and library

  1. Just wanted to be the first!!! :-). Looking forward to the adventures, safe travels and good times for the family will be in our prayers.

  2. What a coincidnce - the pictures look just like the Center did when we visited JoAnn and Martin there a few years ago. We only wish we were up to another trip to Israel but will have to rely on reports from those who can make it while you are there next year. Advising you to be careful and do a good job is like carrying coals to Newcastle but do it anyway.

  3. Oh, man, I'm so excited for you guys! It's going to be great.

  4. We'll be following your blog! We hope all your preparations go smoothly!

  5. What an adventure you'll have! It is beautiful. I can't wait to see more pictures come August. Enjoy the ride!!!

  6. We've booked our tour! We'll see you the second week of May 2010.
