Field Note #175: Even More Than I Anticipated


During our trip into the jungle in the Amazon, we accomplished what we went to do: we repaired two wells and made clean water available to several families. But there was so much more! Our team became a family. We encouraged and supported and enjoyed each other. We ate and laughed and slipped and slept and ran and joked and worked and sweat together. This experience stretched us to our physical limits and expanded our social and cultural boundaries. Our journey will forever be ingrained in my heart and in my mind and on my soul!
