When people ask me the question, “how was your trip?”, I don’t know where to begin. Although the poverty was so intense and heartbreaking and unlike anything I’ve ever seen, there was a beauty and joy among the people that I have never experienced. My friend on the trip said it’s as if they are giving you their smile…it’s so big, joyful, and real. I have never felt more of a passion for photography as when I was there, among these people. It was different than any type of photography I have done. It was raw and it was real…there was beauty and joy within the pain and suffering. They love Jesus with everything in them – a completely uninhibited love.

I could speak about these people and their stories for hours, but I’d rather let the photos do the talking.
