One of those moments

While I lack the time to write new posts, I will be wiping the dust off of some old stories that I've told here. This is a repost  from 2008, inspired by the summer I spent in Malawi, circa 2004.

I was looking through some old pictures and I came across this:

I love this picture for so many reasons. Obviously I was not quite ready...for the picture or for the moment. You see, this picture was taken my first time in Africa. I was in the country of Malawi, and I believe this was one of our first moments with the kids. I was excited, happy, overwhelmed. I had just graduated from college and I thought I knew it all. Little did I know how much I was about to learn, the adventures that would lie ahead, or the passion that was being ignited in me. I love honest pictures like this. This is one of those moments I hope I never forget.

AHHHH!!! I love this pic!! I see this so many times. It was so true in my life, that whole thinking I knew everything and then getting here and realizing that God brought me here to learn. And I see it every time a new person comes here!!! Thank God for the moment when we realize that we DO NOT know it all. Without that moment there would be no hope for change!!

Thank you for your commitment to this country!! :-)
