And I’m back from Vietnam! What a wonderful trip! Below is a picture of my mom being reunited with her sister. They are both in their 70’s and haven’t seen each other in over 40 years. My mom left Vietnam with the Americans in 1975 at the end of the war. She hadn’t seen her family since then. We had an amazing time reconnecting with them.
So it was definitely an emotional trip! And needless to say, God began to open my eyes to the problem of human trafficking in Vietnam. (Why can’t a vacation just be a vacation? 🙂 Please be praying for this new adventure!
