Before and After
During our trip to Petrolina and Treasure Island this past week, I had an amazing experience. I was eating lunch with our seminary team at the home of one of the church bretheren. A man and his wife came in the room, and I immediately recognized them as a couple I had met on my very first trip to Brazil, almost 20 years ago. He recognized me as well, and we got to reminiscing about the time we had spent together, specifically a trip to Recife that we had taken with a group of deaf kids.
The next day he came by where we were staying, and showed me the following picture he had taken on that trip:
In case you didn't figure it out, the skinny, nerdy (seriously, the only thing lacking is the pocket-protector) kid on the left--the one with glasses the size of windshields--is me.
The guy in the picture with me is one of the deaf kids, named Jonas. On Sunday night we went to the deaf church, and guess who I ran into: Jonas! It had been 20 years since I had seen him, also. Just for kicks, we decided to recreate the photo.
