New shoots

October 17, 2011

Last night at the club I leaned over and asked Romeo why he’d volunteered to teach at our school.  He looked at me and said, “You.  I look at you and Krista volunteering to come all the way from America to help my country.  I should do my part.”  I told him not to make me cry.  He laughed and flashed his big smile.

I am so grateful for the people I have met here and the opportunity I have been given.  Hope sends up more new shoots every day.

    Rebekah! Thanks for sharing your words and photos with us! They are beautiful and thoughts are with you. Columbia is cold today – I continue to work at the stables, and have also gone back to school. Sending much love and gratitude for our paths crossing. LP
