Photo of the Week – a look back

As we moved this past week I came across some photos I had not looked at in a while. About this time ten years ago I started to feel a certain pull to serve in Afghanistan and help with the disaster response and relief effort. I took this photo during a distribution of emergency food. The bag into which the girl peers holds 50 kilograms of beans (about 110 pounds), and it should sustain a family for three months. Notice her foot slightly off the ground, the worn elbow of her sweater, the dusty feet… This picture speaks volumes to me. I hope you find meaning in it, too.
