walking

one of the things we got to do today was a LOT of walking. walking through villages. walking by people's homes. walking by empty soccer fields. walking by lonely children. walking through school classrooms. walking through the market. walking by people in pain. walking through trash. lots and lots of walking...

but the most profound realization is not that this is some tourist's walk through a museum. this is walking through real life. it's intense and raw and real and is going to take a lot of processing because our world is so different in so many ways.

Isn't it amazing how vastly different our two worlds are? Yet, as I'm sure you are finding, in many ways, we are the same. I'm praying that God will help you focus on those similarities, and show you how to best minister God's love in tangible ways to those whose paths you cross.
