I have asked God several times on this trip to hold my heart. It has been an amazing experience. Radically life changing. Things in life are just things. It is the love of God that stands through everything we face. That is the hope that we cling to.
Every aspect of this trip has been amazing, from the shut ins, to the dump, to the painting. To bonding with my team and especially the kids. They truly shine with unconditional love. They are amazing. They are happy. They have blessed my socks off.
It was mazing to see throughout the week how every person had a certain child gravitate towards them. They became their child for the week. There really are no words to describe it.
There was much laughter, many tears, but most importantly, much love and joy. Every single person we met was a blessing. I have truly seen how the light of Christ shines through the darkness.
I will never be the same. Hold my heart.
