So it's actually been a few weeks since I've returned from my trip to Jordan. I look at my files of photos and a few videos, and I wish I'd taken more. The one's I wish I really had though were more of the people we met. One of the families we met I have no picture of which is something I really wish I could fix. I really didn't feel comfortable putting the stories and the pictures together, so it was just difficult trying to figure out when to bring out the camera, and when not to.
It was a trip I knew I was supposed to be on. I thought it was to play the role of storyteller, but I feel like I haven't done that justice? Like any mission trip will do, it left a huge impression on me. Unlike most mission trips, there was also some tourist time, which I'm grateful for. I'm a history fan, and you are constantly walking in history here. It also gave visual context to the stories from scripture that you read and hear all the time. I've stood where Moses stood when he looked into the promised land. I've been to the fortress where John the Baptist was beheaded. It doesn't really feel like this was a once in a lifetime visit though, so maybe my next time through the camera will be more of a natural extension of me?
The rest is my wrap up 'slide show' from my time in Jordan (and the getting there).
