Weekly Pic--Just to See You Smile

This time next week I will be in Peru hugging on some little brown faces a lot like this one. We worked with this little guy last summer and he captured my heart. Just look at that smile...and those beautiful brown eyes! The thing about mission work is you go expecting to bless others and yet you wind up with the greater blessing. I may never see this little man again, but he has blessed me beyond measure.
So next week, when we walk through the gates of the Hogar de Esperanza orphanage, I will have every intent of being a blessing to the children and staff there. But I already know that God will place a special child or person in my path that will capture another piece of my heart...and I'll be blessed.
