The Photos to Match Go MAD... and Some Other Things...

Well... I figured as I have a photographer as a cousin, I should put up a few photos of the trip...
Here they are,
This is my AWESOME team and our translators.
These are some of the orphans that stole my heart.
Jet-lagged team in front of the orphanage.
The Wavy foundations we built on.


But this is not just a page of photos.
I want to be an encouragement to you all.

My heart was stolen by Myanmar, and in that, my faith grew. So much in this world is dissatisfying. Maybe, like the building that our team was working on at first. Why was that unfulfilling? Because we didn't have a firm foundation. It wasn't lining up. 
We couldn't build it in such a way that it was perfect.

In our life, we need a firm foundation. What is our most often? Is it Jesus? If not, life will often seem unfulfilling. 

Now, I will leave you lo with a poem, just cos that's what I do!

(By the way, thinking about literature, YOU GUYS SHOULD TOTALLY DO CAMP NANOWRIMO AT SOME POINT!!!!!!!!!!!)

Love Like a Forest

Look at the calm, forest glade,

The green light, filtering breeze,

The morning mist and haze,

The scent of the endless seas.

Yet when hope, in hope unlost,

And trust beyond all measures,

Is granted with but the cost,

Of wicked mean's pleasures.

But your love from above,

Is with no limits alike a forest,

And it descends like a dove,

My worries are now finished.

For to give hope and hope to gain,

Yes, life will never be the same.
