In the summer of 2014, I was graciously afforded the opportunity to travel to Israel on a scholarship through my school, Sioux Falls Seminary. I participated in a three-week course called Historical and Geographical Settings of the Bible at Jerusalem University College; you can learn more about the program here.
My time in Israel was an experience I never believed I would have, and it is one that I will carry with me for the rest of my life. I am extremely grateful to the donors at Sioux Falls Seminary and everyone who helped make the trip possible. Thank you!
Below are links to the daily impression reports that I wrote for class. I spent a little extra time each night turning them into blog entries so I could preserve my experiences and share them with others.
