What Love Looks Like


It's been so special spending part of each day with the team as they go into the small community of Durango to tutor the adorable kiddos there.  It's real love in action.  


They come running from all directions.   Some in their tank tops and sandals, even though it's breezy outside.  Some with a used princess backpack.  All excited to have help with their homework.  All ready to give out big hugs.
{It's awesome that I'm an instant celebrity because I'm the sister of the bigger celebrity}

It was so funny this afternoon.  We started taking lots of goober-self-photos at the back of the Missionary Van and afterwards realized that all the neighbors were watching.  Great.  We are now established as the awkwardly-awesome-obsessive-self-photographers.  Rep-Resent!!


I am so incredibly proud of my sister.  Do you see how beautiful and amazing she is?!  
It's been so special to watch what she does with the kids here.  
She is amazing.  And I'm proud to be her bestie.  And you should read her awesome blog.

  1. I am officially jealous. (in a good kind-of way :) I have dreamed of being a missionary full time and here I have found you and your blog, living my dream. Could I be any more happy? :)
    P.S. I'm viewing this post on my sissy's iPod, so I can't see the whole blog too well at the moment, but what is your sis's blog name?
