This Trip at first was hard for me to comprehend, why did God choose me? I realized that the way God worked in my life was for me to be a light in a place of darkness. Even through my brokenness and even through the trails experienced during the trip, it was our teams job to show the light to show God’s love. God worked in amazing ways, he was fighting for us and he was there with the youth of Hamama and with us saying “I am here, I love you. Trust in me.” God really made me realize something about me that I saw but always pushed away, he made me realize that the happiness placed in me and the light placed in me has such an affect on people. God made me realize that this happiness and light is the very essence of where people see him in me. I know that I have a mission to spread his word and it’s starting here in my own home. Something as simple as a smile, a show of love, a hug, being a friend can go a long way and build connections for a life time. I’m so grateful for the opportunity God has given me, the way God worked through my team and I. All I have to give is thanks to our God because my team and I have built amazing connections with the people we met.
