remembering

Places that changed my mind.
Faces that changed my heart.
It is because of these people that my life will (hopefully) never be the same. Today I needed to be reminded.
(All are worthy of a post of their own, but after getting so wordy on the previous post, tonight you just get pictures. Maybe one day I will tell you their stories. They deserve to be told.) On a walk; Kumasi, Ghana; 2002


Children's hospital; Cape Coast, Ghana; 2002



Boys working to build LDS Chapel; Accra, Ghana; 2002


Burn victims in LUTH; Lagos, Nigeria; 2002


Playing with the kids; Masia Mara village in Kenya; 2002
My official welcome to the village; Masai Mara village in Kenya; 2002

Meeting with the Chief; Samburu village in Kenya; 2002

Loving me some orphans; Iasi, Romania; 2004
Visiting the new orphanage; La Paz, Bolivia; 2004


The orphan who never leaves my mind; Iasi, Romania; 2005
Anyone ready to go back with me?

Me...me! I'll go. These are great pictures and good reminders. I still think of our babies often.

YES! Liz - it KILLS me that I'm so close to Romania and just can't make it there. I've considered renting a car and driving with Riley ... it's so tempting but also far enough away. I had never seen those pictures from Africa. I can't wait to hear there stories.

Scott and Cassidy Cowley said...

YES PLEASE! I'm dead serious I would love to go back and share the experience with Scott. I had no idea how many service expeditions you've been on. Way to go Liz!
