The Power of a Picture…

As we walked the streets one day with our friends in Mexico, we came upon this scene.  I love the story of a single photo…  In a state of severe poverty is how we found her, living next door to another family we were visiting.  Dirt floors, no plumbing, but some hope of assistance when they need it thanks to Casa Bugambillia down the road.   We learned of the challenges of her home life where even those that are supposed to love her most are too lost to give even their hearts to this sweet girl.  I found it beautiful to see her at this home that isn’t hers and how I wondered if she knew the One that ultimately loves her completely.  All pictures taken in Mexico have been donated and used for storytelling efforts to help bring hope to these people.

“Christ has no body on earth but yours, no hands but yours, no feet but yours.  Yours are the eyes through which Christ’s compassion for the world is to look out; yours are the feet with which He is to go about doing good; and yours are the hands with which He is to bless us now.”     – Saint Teresa of Avila
