It's only been a few days and already I'm amazed by the love I see everywhere we go. Despite the poverty, the disease and the still devastating effects from the earth quake I see God all around. I see God in the joyous children that run to us and beg to be held, in the face of the elderly woman that is so grateful for the simple act of carrying a bucket of water to her home and the little girl's hand I hold as she radiates a sense of joy despite her physical challenges. I came here expecting to serve as God's hands - but instead I find more often that it is me who is holding on to God's hand as I walk with a child who I have never met but feel like I've known for a lifetime.
Thank you God!
