Count your many blessings name them one by one...

Reading other people's blogs today inspired me to post these pictures that my brother-in-law Taylor sent from his mission in Mozambique, Africa.

I think we really take for granted (I know I do), the little things in life, like running water, flushing toilets, and food. In other places around the world, these are not such little things, but rather big, life changing things. Check out the other side of the world...

This is an average toilet in Mozambique. Just slide back the metal lid and squat. Sure makes our porcelain bowls look like thrones, huh?

This is one of the churches in Mozambique. And yes, that is how many members showed up on this day. In fact, Taylor had to run primary this day, because nobody from the primary leadership was there.

This is some African kids begging for food from the Elders. He says they actually aren't starving because they beg so much, they just think they are starving.

These are some African children in his first area.

Receiving these pictures from Africa really helps me to have a reality check, What do you think?
