Visitation

Today myself and a group of visiting missionaries visited three places that I wish did not exist in this world. And yet, these places do exist, and many more. We went to squatter areas, where the poorest of the poor live, day in, and day out. The toughest place to visit is the city dump site. The smells and the garbage is overwhelming, and to think that people actually live in such a place. For some of our visiting missionaries, this was their first time to see such places. One guy kept saying over and over, "I can't believe people actually live in this place, if I spent too much time thinking about it, I would probably break down crying, and you would have to carry me home."

I have been to the city dump site many times over the years, and it still overwhelms me. Even today I almost lost my lunch several times.
