Returning to the James Place

Two summers ago God gave me the opportunity to come to HEAL Ministries and intern at the James Place. I’ve always had a heart for Africa, but I didn’t know that I could fall in love with it SO much more. I made friendships with the interns, women, children, and even people in town that I will always cherish. It is rough leaving a place with people that you love so so much, not knowing when you’ll see them again. Before I even left the James Place I wanted to come back.

God is good, and now I’m back with some of my favorite people. Being reunited with everyone is SO sweet! I am soaking up and loving every second with these beautiful people. The friendships that are made here are REAL and GENUINE. I am so so thankful to be here again, and I already am bummed when I think about having to go home, but like I said before God is good, and I know that I will see these people again someday.
