Faces of Samoa

As much as we are in awe of the scenery here, without a doubt it is the people who have captured our hearts.  We have felt so welcomed by their kindness.  This culture is one of deep sense of connection to community  and to God.   No matter where we have gone we have felt very safe, able to ask anyone we met how to say something or for directions of where to go.  I want to always remember the open generosity of spirit these people have shown us and that I can carry that with me throughout my days.
