Another Facebook update from Meghan Witzel:

Just left Brisas and on our way back to Cartagena.

Saying goodbye to the people we lived in Community with for a week was one of the hardest goodbyes ever. πŸ’”

They changed our lives. Forever.

I kinda hate the quote “Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened.”

Because we SHOULD cry.

We should be sad that right now…it’s over. And we will miss them so much! 😒

We need to let ourselves be sad.
And then, with tears in our eyes we can remind ourselves of our hearts that are overflowing and be OVERJOYED that it happened. πŸŒΊπŸ’•πŸŒΊ

As I look back on the bus at our youth, I smile. 😊☺😊

On the drive here they all took a seat to themselves.

Now they’re all buddied up and sitting together. Some are talking, some are just being present with each other.
I can’t even describe how much they all take care of each other. πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–

So as I look back at them, tears fill my eyes and I say to myself….

“It was never about building a church”.

Let it be.
