love.

7.31.2011

Today I'm at the ranch talking to the family about my experience working in a Honduran orphanage.
I will never forget the love I gained for the Honduran people. 
They're sweet and generous and willing to help in anyway they can, even with their very humble means.
It's wonderful how service can break down walls of misunderstandings and misconceptions about cultures. 
Can you imagine what would happen in the world if we all had the chance to serve those we didn't understand? That's really where all prejudices spring from--misunderstandings. May we strive each day to understand those we are surrounded by and may our love grow for our brothers and sisters here on earth.
What do you do to feel greater love for those around you?

Hi there! Found your blog through your GP on Daniell's blog this morning... Love your blog so far! I've always wanted to volunteer in a country with children, but I haven't had the chance yet. I love the picture that you posted above, and this post is just so relevant to me. I agree 100%.

That must've been such a wonderful chance for you. A great way to clear up misunderstandings indeed.

I have been wanting to do a trip like this for the longest time. Can I ask what organization you went through? I love serving people because I have been so blessed that I strive to help those in need whether it be physically, spiritually, or mentally.

I love love love Honduras! My senior year of high school I spent spring break working in La Cieba with an organization called Helping Honduras Kids. I absolutely agree with what you had to say about the people -- they are so genuine, caring, and willing to help no matter what! I LOVE your blog also:) Thanks so much for sharing!

I just returned from Kenya and it is amazing that when you are serving, you realize the love you have for God's children. My perspective is forever changed. It opened my heart to be more loving, kind, and patient.
