This past Friday I returned home from my third journey to a country in Central America that is capturing my heart. The weather always seems to be perfect, the scenic landscape is striking and the coffee is unmatched. However, it is the people that I have met along the way that continue to impress me and inspire me to keep coming back.
So I arrived back home late last night from my second missions trip to the great island and U.S. territory of Puerto Rico. Upon returning, I feel an urge to write a small reflection on my overall experience during my week there. While it would be impossible to record an exhaustive account that completely portrays all the events, emotions and experiences that can encompasses a trip like this, I have attempted here to provide five brief reflections that provide you with a good overall perception of the great spiritual benefits of these types of trips.
