A Heart Full of Joy

Well, it's now the end of week three of my time in Africa, and I love it. God is working in some pretty amazing ways, and although it has been hard at times, I'm so glad that I'm here.

Yesterday I took my camera along with me to a feeding program in one of the nearby communities, and I left with a memory card full of smiles and a heart overflowing with joy. The kids love having their picture taken, and it brought me so much joy to see the joy that it brought to their faces.

God is so good, and it is exciting to see what He is doing here in Africa through ministries like Ten Thousand Homes. He is bringing hope into a world of hopelessness and light into the darkness. I'm in awe at His amazing compassion and love, and so excited to be a part of what He is doing.

If you would like to read more about my time in Africa, you can visit my trip blog at I try to post there at least once a week if possible, and also include lots of photos!
