Pierson and Maylin
Wow we had an awesome trip! It was amazing to get to go visit and help the orphanage that we actually sponsor. I was a bit nervous about taking my children. Not because I feared for their safety but because I didn't want them to be a distraction to our mission.
I couldn't have had it more wrong. In Mark chapter10 Jesus says "Let the children come to me, do not hinder them. For the Kingdom of God belongs to such as these." And in Isaiah it says "A little child shall lead them."
Pierson and Maylin did just that. They lead the way in breaking the ice in each new orphanage we went to. It didn't matter that they didn't speak Spanish. They immediately got right in there and played with the kids as if they were long lost friends.
The poverty didn't phase them a bit. To my knowledge they had never seen poverty like this before. As best as I know they still haven't 'seen' poverty like I have seen poverty.
I see poverty stricken orphanages and pity the children affected. They see these places and see "hide and seek" partners. Oh how I wish for eyes like a child.

Maylin quickly made friends with one of the missionary kids!
Maylin gave her crocks away... Not only did she give them to her, without direction from me she took the girls tattered flip flops off and put her crocks on the girls feet... Yep my heart was filled with joy.

How HE loves us all.
Wouldn't the world would be a better place if we could love unconditionally like a child.
