365: days 208-209

Sometimes it is so nice to take a break from editing pictures of people and edited flowers and inanimate objects… :)

365: days 203-207

OKAY. I’m here. I have been buried alive under pictures and school and such. I’m back from the beach, all registered for classes and college visits, and all sorts of exciting things such as thus.

See, this is what my desk looks like currently:

crazy messy and filled with photography things.
(on a side note, do you see my adorable argyle planner??? i LOVE it!)

But, here are some soothing (and not so soothing) pictures from the beach to catch me up for the past few days. ;)

update: wednesday

For the past 7 hours I have been editing pictures… hundreds and hundreds. (eleven thousand pictures total, to be exact.)

Our trip to El Salvador was absolutely amazing. The kids were adorable, the teenagers so loving, and everything else was awesome (aside from my getting sick on the way home… but that’s another story).

My favorite part would have to have been the night that we went to the Iglesia de Christo at El Refugio. After being crammed into a tiny room with dozens of people, we all walked to the nearby park and sang for an hour or so. A song or two in English, then a few in Spanish, then a few that we would sing in both languages… and we just kept doing this.

It was so amazing to hear other people praise God in a different language, and then to do the same in ours.

Of course, the nine VBS’s that we did were wonderful too. Well, let’s just say that the whole trip was wonderful.

I’m headed to the beach at the moment, but as soon as I edit enough pictures to post, I’ll update my 365 challenge. :)

365: day 191

image

This is where I will be for the next 9 days… I CANNOT wait. :)

Of course I will not be posting pictures daily, but as soon as I get back, I will post pictures. :) And trust me, I will have a whole lot of pictures especially since I am the official mission trip photographer.

Please keep our whole team in your prayers. For our safety and that we will be a blessing to all we come in contact with! <3
