A Beautiful Day...

There were so many memorable moments while in Panama, but one of the most special was getting to baptize Becky in the ocean.

She had told our team before our trip that she had never been baptized by immersion and felt that she needed to do that and do that in a large body of water.

It doesn't get much larger than the Pacific Ocean.

Or rougher as it was near high tide and the waves kept coming. Luckily we had David Beltz out there with us to hold off the waves and keep us from being sucked out to sea.

What a blessing it was to be a part of this very beautiful day.

So I have been safely back in the States for a few days now. As I've been telling people who ask if I'm rested up, I'm feeling mostly normal now. Although I cry alot.

Not a sad sort of a cry but a "God is overwhelming and continues to overwhelm me" sort of a way.

For those of you who aren't tracking with me yet, a few details. I've just got back from a nine day mission trip to Panama.

This is currently my favorite photo from the trip. I believe it captures some of the mystery and beauty of our adventures.

This is my second favorite photo.

It's pretty self-explanatory.

I'll probably be sharing some more stories over the next few days/weeks. But I mostly just wanted to let everyone know that I was still I haven't posted in (gasp) over a month!

So hello...again. Hope you are still out there.
