let me just start this off by saying... i am so blessed. this morning i got to hear the cry of a brand new life coming into this world. a friend of mine who has been living on the compound gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. and despite how little sleep i got, hearing that cry just filled my soul and all i could think of was how blessed i was to be able to hear and be a part of that. later on today i got to help unload a shipping container for the mobile medical clinic and wash some dishes. these things may not sound like blessings but when i sit now and think about it, they are. i am blessed to be a part of this ministry and to help the french's out in whatever way i can. i feel blessed just to have the david and lorie as my coordinators. then this evening i went to the airport to pick up a couple who will be staying with us for a month and on the way back we took a very bad detour. we went through a compound that just made my heart break into a million pieces. it just hit me like a ton of bricks that i was no longer in the states. i was surrounded by people who had very little and lived on practically nothing. and while we drove through there and i held back the tears i just had think that i am blessed. i'm blessed for the parents that raised me. blessed for the big and even small things that they provided me with. i am just blessed. so if you're reading this, stop for a minute and think about the blessings that God has given you. i think you will be blown away!
