God of this City...

Happy Friday to all! This week has flown by. It feels like it was forever ago that I was Uruguay. That makes me sad! Confession: I still haven't unpacked! ha! We have a really busy weekend ahead....so unpacking is not looking promising. :) Well, as you can imagine...I have a crazy amount of pictures from our trip! And I would love to share them all with you, but that is just not possible on Blogger. I have over 200 of them posted on my Facebook page if you are interested! And I have over 500 pictures saved on my laptop! hahah! So, I just thought every few days I would show you the highlights of our trip on my blog. Today I posted a few pictures from our traveling time at the beginning of our trip and our first Uruguayan meal when we got to town!
(you might notice i had a lot of fun editing some of my photos!! hehee!) Excited to leave for the airport!
This is our entire mission team!

These are the faces after a really really really looooooong flight to Uruguay! ha!

This was our faces on our very first flight of the day!
We look much"fresher" than in the previous picture!

Our first meal in Uruguay! This is Paso de los Toros. It's a grapefruit soda!

There was lots and lots of meat. Some meat I'm not sure what it was! I did hear that some of it was intestine.
Hungry anyone?

Tim trying out a "mystery" meat! hahaha! He has no fear.

This was my plate. A stuffed chicken, beef, cold potato salad (type thing) and bread.
Well, I hope you enjoyed my first segment of pictures! It is so hard to go from doing mission work for 9 days......to normal life this week! It makes me a little depressed. But I can't stop thinking about how many needs there are in my own town...and my own neighborhood at that! There is much to be done.
It makes me think of the Chris Tomlin song "God of this City".
Greater things are still to be done in this city.....
Enough of my random ramblings! :o)
I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!!!!!
Lots o' love!
Amanda

Great pictures!! You definitely eat interesting things on mission trips! To this day (13 years later) I can't eat rice and beans because I ate too much of that in Haiti when I went. Keep the highlights coming! :)
