I know that the little time stamp says 6 years ago, but this picture was actually taken 12 years ago (I think…) in Trinidad. It was the trip that sparked my relationship with Ninja. It was also a trip that began my journey of true healing and the first step in my personal journey that has brought me to today.
There have been a lot of ups and downs in the past 12 years. When I look at each of the faces in this photo, I am so thankful for each and every one of them. They were an amazing support to me before, during, and after the trip. They are truly beautiful, compassionate, and grace-full individuals.
Our church made trips to Trinidad for several years to help a local pastor and their ministry to orphanages and prisons there. I was lucky enough to be able to join on one of those trips and it truly was a life changing experience.
