Wow like where do I even start???
June 23-30 was probably one of the best weeks of my life. I learned so much, and made so many new friends. I became an 'Auntie' to 5 precious little children.
On 6.23.17 I went to AR to stay with a family we had met the previous month. I stayed with a family we are really good friends with, and every morning I went over to the Z's house to help out. I cleaned and cooked and took care of some of the children for the mom to get a nap. (she said that changed her life, lol!!) These people were so much fun, and the best memories ever were made!!
It was my 'training' for going to Africa. My first 'mission' trip. I missed my family so much, but now that I'm back I miss them SO. MUCH!!!! *cries* We really need to visit them! *sniffs*
I've decided not to put all these pictures in exact order. I'm gonna do more in other posts, cause there are around 200 I think. I'm planning on getting all of them printed out and put into an album, to forever keep. ugh i miss them so much!!!!
