So beautiful! So many are "searching" for something when it is really a change in our own hearts or minds. Awesome! :O)

This is so touching and beautiful, Lynette.

It was a fantastic, eye-opening, life-changing experience for him and Jolene.

They did definitely got bitten by the travel bug, too.

Jerry and I are both very proud of them both for sticking it out for 2 years despite the primitive conditions they lived in and their frequent illnesses caused by insect bites and microbe-filled water.
