I LOVE THIS PICTURE!!!! We never get this boy to smile for a picture. He’s in a stage where he’d rather pose in cool mode and not so much show the sweet soft guy that is buried underneath…but the other day we were at a build site and I had my new camera with me and I said oh smile Eduardo and he did and this is what turned out. 🙂

I look at it and remember a day several years ago sitting in a village with a sweet little boy who grabbed a hold of my hand and my heart as we sat on a cement floor and sang all day long while a team built his family a new house. I remember a hundred times when he hugged me and meant it. I remember many times when he has asked for my help or my advice. I remember the times when he has allowed me a glimpse into his heart. I remember the good stuff…

Amazing when I look at this picture how I really sort of forget the moments that have felt like frustration or failure or hopelessness. I have sort of just been pulling it up every couple of hours over the past couple of days since I took it and feeling a flood of hope when I see those eyeballs and remember there’s a heart behind them that I love a WHOLE BUNCH!!!

I continue to covet your prayers for his heart as he is attempting to find his way in a culture that doesn’t necessarily encourage soft and kind…I continue to beg God to seal His heart in ways that He can never turn from.

As always I appreciate you journeying with us…this ministry is the effort of so many and we couldn’t do what we do without you.

Love and blessings.
