Hidden truth is worth seeking.....eighteen

A continuation from day 9 of 31 days of reflecting on truth.

Girl eighteen......She dared to dream.  She fought thru the loneliness of a long distance relationship and said yes once again, this time to a deep calling.  Her sights were set on Africa and God was providing.  She made her way to Miami with expectancy.  Now her dream was too finding wings.  
     She had no words for the things that invaded her heart.  She thought how could she ever leave this place without leaving all of it.  She would never be the same because of the way these people touched her with their love and kindness, their smiles thru pain and hardship, their thankfulness, gratitude out measured their education, their vocabulary, the amount of food on their plates at any given serving, the need for and the lack of electricity and running water.  Their focus was never on their needs but rather on how they might serve you.  
     She was humbled and touched and moved oh so very much.  This Jesus and these people, they were doing the ministering, the teaching and she had so much to learn from them.
     The time came and she must go home and questioned what was she going back to.......
