Photo Phrenzy II

I've been home in the U.S. for a week and a half now, but I thought a few pictures from the second half of my time in Jordan would be entertaining.
The neighborhood kids who helped with our trash clean-up project.
Helping the LDS humanitarian missionaries at a local girls school.
Three of Abu Zeina's ten children and the goat they had me milk. Zeina, the oldest daughter, is an ambitious twenty-four year old masters student who runs a local charitable society in her area. She is the second woman from her village to become educated, and she's doing amazing things.
Typical transportation: a self-decorated, privately-operated bus.
The baptism of Sister Hiam and her son Danni.
A view of the Jordan Valley and Lake Tiberias, or the Sea of Galilee.
The Al Madi family and I. The Al Madis are a large and influential family in Jordan who have helped BYU and the LDS Church. This connection led me to spend several days with them in their home teaching English to the children. They were a ton of fun to be with, and they treated me like family.
Some of my English students.
The Egyptian bakers.
Some friends who came to say goodbye.
The Husseini Mosque in downtown Amman during Maghreb prayer.
