Pure joy.


Have you ever been doing something or been somewhere and it just feels right? Like it’s exactly where you are supposed to be?

That’s Emmanuel Children’s Home for me. And I know this is true for our group right now as well…we wouldn’t want to be anywhere else!

It has been another wonderful day…spending time in the classrooms, playing games, giving “caballo” rides, soaking in the sunshine and being blessed with so many hugs and kisses from all of our ninos…thinking back on all the moments we have had with the kids today I can’t help but feel just pure joy. Seeing their smiles and hearing their laughter and watching how much fun our group is having, it is so obvious that God has us here for a purpose. I think we are each being challenged in ways we wouldn’t have imagined and I know God is using us to show these kids how much they are loved.

Alright, off to go attempt playing soccer and enjoy another night here in Juarez…thanks for all your prayers – they are felt in such a deep way!

Here are a few more photos from my morning with the preschoolers!
