South Africa's beauty

Ok, so today I was really missing my LA home, well, more like LA people. It's so weird cause my heart has been so stirred by how amazing ministry is here and how much I love it here too. Sometimes I am in complete awe of how the Lord is blessing our church and bringing people to Himself here. How could I want to be anywhere else?? People always say home is where the heart is....can't your heart be in two places at once? I wish I could just combine both worlds into one big pot, & stir em up. *sigh* Don't you guys just all want to move to Hillcrest to make this easier? :) NUTS!! But the Lord is always good. 2 Corninthians 3:2 "You yourselves are our letter of recommendation, written on our hearts, to be known and read by all. And you show that you are a letter from Christ delivered by us, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts." I can understand Paul's feeling of love for his flocks all over the world. "Let the peoples praise you, O God; let all the peoples praise you! Let the nations be glad and sing for joy, for you judge the peoples with equity and guide the nations upon earth. Selah" Psalm 67

So looking over all the photos that the team took, it hit me...the beauty of Africa. These guys took some amazing's a few of 'em.
