The way I can adjust and find a routine so quickly amazes me. It's a blessing and curse.
My trip felt long and permanent. And now I am back in the states and moving on with life. I have been telling family and friends all about what I learned and what I saw, but talking about it isn't enough. I wish people could see for themselves and truly understand everything that I try to express through words.
At least I have hundreds and hundreds of photos!
It really was magnificent.
The bond between our team was strong and powerful. We spent two weeks seeing each others personalities in a whole new setting. I realize now that a team like ours is one of a kind. Living together and going through the emotional roller coasters of a mission trip brought us on a whole new level or friendship. These are the people who were with me during one of the most influential and important experiences of my life.
One person who I would have been lost without is Haley Pearson. She was my other half during those two weeks. It was such a blessing to have her with me the whole way through.
This is one of my favorite streets in Greece....
And this is the cute little Greek coffee shop we visited
