Collecting Memories

When the plane landed, and I once again walked in this beautiful country, my heart was full of anticipation. I was ready for the smells, the sights, and the delightful smiles so readily given. I was not disapointed. The year is different, the team is different, yet our purpose remains the same. We honour the Lord with our willing hearts to be used, and in turn are blessed to be a part of something so much bigger than ourselves.
The first smile to old friends, the warm embraces, and shared laughter is imprinted upon my heart in my collection of memories. I want to savour each moment. I know how fast the week unfolds. I watch, I listen, I hug as many people as I can.
I love the Lord that brought me here.
I´ll sleep tonight thinking of loved ones back home as much as anticipating another day.
