A Year in Pictures #11


I don’t see many opportunities to get a shot like this.  While it may not seem like anything too special, its hard to get a shot of the women in a moment of stillness as most often its the women of the church who are off cooking and cleaning and making the teams feel at home.  This was a lucky moment.  We were headed back from Maniche and one of the team members was Haitian so we made a quick stop in his home town.  We also visited his home church.  This woman was sitting outside a small store the church runs.  Every time I see this picture I’m struck by her dignity and poise.  I am also struck by the beauty in her face and I can only imagine what stories her wrinkles and grey hairs tell.
