Amor

Well we got back from our mission trip to rocky point with everything in tact and one new tooth! It was such an awesome experience. I saw God working in so many ways and it was really eye opening to see how people in other countries live. I used to think this kind of poverty only existed in far off places like Africa. But to see people living it structures with walls made of cardboard boxes, with no running water or electricity was just unbelievable. I think the thing that hit home most for me was seeing little babies living there. I just know how hard it is for me sometimes with Nellie, even just doing everyday things. I can't even imaging trying to raise a child in conditions such as they were down there. Knowing that God used our hands and feet to help out a family in need is so humbling. Anyway here are a few pics from the trip. The rest are HERE
