Some first thoughts form March Team Visit members on their return

Loving people into the Kingdom:
We saw so many amazing examples of churches and individuals loving and caring for their neighbours. When they told us about their churches, it wasn't about their Sunday services, but about what they are doing to help their communities - visiting people in their homes, helping them to generate a little income, caring for the sick ... As well as bringing relief, this has resulted in many people coming to faith and churches growing.

Smiling faces
These people have so little, and in many cases suffer so much - but they have such beautiful smiles!
Welcome
Everywhere we went we were made so welcome. People hugged us, sang and danced for us. They invited us into their tiny homes. They seemed to count it a privilege that we were there - which made us feel very humble.
