Better late than never :)






Here is just a small small window into our time here. (Seriously, Stephen has taken hundreds of pictures.) I don't have the time to sit and write how my heart has been impacted by all that we've seen, but I will find that time once we get home. We have spent time with: Zimbawian refugees, HIV positive men, women & children (caring for one HIV baby, pic above, for just a few short hours had the most profound impact on me, out of everything we've done), the local church here (very cool to see how deeply they're involved in all that we've seen, so so cool), and we'll share more details later.

This has been a great trip for us and more specfically our marriage. We feel like we've grown in our leadership together more in the last seven days than we have in our entire year of marriage. Thank you for those of you who have prayed for us on that point. Also, thank you for praying for our team's health NO ONE HAS BEEN SICK!!! I have never before been on a trip where someone didn't have some sort of sickness (be it travelers runs or bronchitus). Thank you Lord for hearing our prayers!!!

We leave here tomorrow night, be back in the States late Sunday. Write more later....

You haven't even share much and tears are welling up in my eyes. I have such a heart for missions, people that are suffering for any reason and kidd-o's that are sick. I especially am moved to see people who have a quarter of what we have and praise God like no other. Very humbeling indeed.

Can't wait to hear about all the details and see all the pictures! Love and miss you both.
