Mission in Mexico 2006.
This is when I feel most like Jesus and am at my best - holding one of His children in my arms. Meet Clara - she lives in one of about 15 garbage dumps around Mexico City. She has the most beautiful smile don't you think? I wish I could have adopted her on the spot!!!
PS although this mission trip was great - I had no idea that at the end of the trip I was about to be plunged into the darkest period of my Christian walk - the "darkness" lasted almost a year. I look at this picture and think, "wow, I had no idea what was coming!" Sometimes it really is best we don't know things ahead of time. Thanks you sweet Jesus for being my Rock and my Light.
Little missionary :)
