Erin, I have seen a side of you that amazes and inspires me. i was worried about you,now I am worried about them. With your spirit and compassion for the people, no matter what, you show the face of God to them. With your love smile and the way you reach out to people. I can't wait to read your next installment Gob Bless and He is with You. Love Greg.

I am so excited for you and all that you are experiencing. The love I encountered in the Philippines from the children playing, hugging, holding, and laughing with me was one of the greatest sources of joy I think I will ever encounter. It fills and breaks your heart all at the same time.

I also want to say that I love the paintings you included from Joey Velasco. I had the opportunity to meet him while I was there and he was a simple and incredible man. Each of his paintings holds so much meaning. If you get a chance check out the Gawad Kalinga villages. There are many in and around Manila. Joey worked with them and many of his paintings were inspired by them including the last supper painting you included in your post!

Enjoy the moments! Let God in and you will be changed forever.

Can't wait to hear more!
God Bless,
