isn't ashlyn the cutest thing you've ever seen? her smile, ah! it kills me. she is so happy it's insane. she just got transferred to the heart of philadelphia--she is loving the city & enthusiastic about her work. she is becoming a woman--i can feel it in her words. they are dripping with optimism, faith, and a sincere, deep, life-changing love of christ.
ciara opened her call on saturday and is headed to TAHITI, PAPEETE in june! she would hop on a plane for french polynesia this instant if she could--her anticipation is palpable, and so is her love for the people of tahiti that she hasn't even met. she is so unafraid and brave--you can see passion for the gospel in her eyes.
seeing these girls is my testament: with all of the craziness of the world stirring around us, there is so much good to be found. so much light. they are sunshine to the world, & i could not be more proud to call them mine.
