I've been doing a little research on Jordan's new area of Sayaxche. I can't wait to get some real photos from him. Here are a few photos I found on line that make a mom sleep much better at night knowing this is where her son is living.......
The photo of the spider above is from photos taken by his companion that his mom put up on facebook. SWEET!
Somehow I pictured riding on the back of a truck a little different than this. This must be during rush hour.
In Jordan's words, I think this is what he was describing when he said, "This place is straight up awesome!"
This really is beautiful, though.
BUT THIS LAST PICTURE IS WHAT HELPS US MISSIONARY MOMS REALLY SLEEP AT NIGHT:
This is what makes it all worth it.
It is through our faith and our testimony of this church and the earthly and eternal blessings that our sons and daughters are bringing to these wonderful people, our brothers and sisters, that keep us all going. The sacrifices are small compared to the rewards. We have been given much in this life and we are thankful for a son who is giving so much back to say thank you to our Heavenly Father.
