10 ASB pictures

It's the 10th and I am following along with Shimelle and crew. 10 things on the 10th. The pictures below are from an Alternative Spring Break trip I took with some university students. ASB trips are where students give up their break to have transformative experiences through volunteering. Lives are changed forever. At the very least they help and change a community through volunteering and relationship building. This was a while ago, but it is a trip I reflect on a lot. We went to Mexico and worked in orphanages. Head on over to Shimelle's blog to link up if you would like to share your 10 Things or to see others 10 Things!

Amazing! I love these pictures. So much good stuff going on. The smile on an orphan's face reminds me that even after tragedy there will be laughter. What a wonderful experience!!
