My husband and I traveled to Reynosa, Mexico last week with an incredible team of people from our church. We built a home for a homeless family in a colonia that's so poor they're considered the "throw aways" of society and aren't really aknowledged by the government or anyone else, for that matter. Many of the people living there survive by digging through a massive garbage dump everyday. Heartbreak doesn't even begin to describe what you feel when you walk these streets. The constant thought running through my mind all week was "I just want to do more for them." I'm grateful that I serve a God who sees and knows each of them and will never turn His back on them. I'm also grateful that He sends us to love and serve and care for the least of these. If you're scrolling through and looking at these photos, would you mind taking a moment and praying for these precious people? Thank you from the bottom of my heart!!!
If you're ever in Utah go to Zion! It far exceeded our expectations. We still consider ourselves beach people but, oh, the mountains are growing on us. Enjoy! ;)
I adore my family. Last week Kyle and I went out to San Francisco with my parents to visit my brother and sister-in-law for the holidays and to help them move into their new house by the beach. We had such a fantastic time in spite of the cold weather, Meg's flu bug (why she's only in a few pics), and the chaos of moving. The only thing missing was my babes! Next time for sure... Uncle Clay has to teach them to catch crabs off the pier. :)
