One of the most amazing places I have been!
This is the 14th year our church has come to Esperanza on the West Coast of Vancouver island for a missions work week. We build, paint, cook, clean, and repair...on the outside. Last night we learned that the history of this place goes on beyond Esperanza and was referred to in the native languages by a word that meant "liver". The cleansing of the body occurs in the liver and this is truly a cleansing place, for those who come just to work for a week and those who come to find respite and healing from family tragedies during the counseling weeks. How can you not find cleansing when you look out and see this as far as you can see?
