we’ve hit the half way point in this amazing journey to Israel. we’ve seen so much and have dug up more history in a day than a whole year of high school history class. to say the least this is a life altering experience that should be, if possible, experienced by anyone who is able to go. to actually see history instead of reading it in a book is completely surreal. walking on the ground and finding the tools of the ancient times makes the 4:30am wake up completely worth it!!!!! i hope the next 2 weeks will be just as eventful and meaningful as the last 2.
