I like to get up early, usually at around 4:30 or 5am. It gives me a chance to get a jump on the day. I prepare for Bible class, I reply to emails, I write, I meditate and I pray.
On this particular morning, just as the sun was coming up, I could hear someone working in the field next to us. I walked out, introduced myself and asked if I could take his photo. I knew the light would be perfect.
We didn’t talk. I let him work, and took photo after photo. I probably took 150 photos to get to this one image.
I found out where he lived and stopped by to give him a printed copy. Vonda and I probably spent an hour visiting with his parents as their grandkids ran in and out of the room, laughing and playing and staring at the “gringos”. They wouldn’t let us leave until we took a bag full of oranges from their tree. The kindness in this country is hard to describe.
