Well, we are officially back from our trip and officially exhausted, both emotionally and physically. We arrived home at 5:00 on Tuesday afternoon. I have so much to say about our experience, it's difficult to know where to start. This won't be an especially long post, but I promise to post a little more each day.
The kids in our group were amazing. I was so touched by the way they opened themselves up to be moved by God. I saw them give piggy back ride after piggy back ride to attention-starved children, pull weeds and paint houses for 2 days straight, encourage each other, cry with each other, and pray with each other. I feel so honored to have been part of such a group.
Our chaperones were also incredible. They were there for us, especially Travis, when we were out of patience and running on empty. They stepped in at exactly the right moments and helped us continue on.
Here are some pics from the trip...I'll try to post some of our actual experiences later on today or tomorrow.
