I finally got the Cuban food I was promised…… at the Miami airport:)

We had the BESSSSSSST time in Trinidad.  The people were so warm and hospitable. The food was spicy and flavorful…. ok sometimes spicier than I could handle!  For Kyle it was NO PROBLEM AT ALL!! We spent most of the time hanging with the local church who welcomed us like family.  Our friend Blake was the guest speaker at a conference(he wrote “The Veil”…click here to order his book…. it will change your life!).  We were blessed to assist him and be his ministry team.  We worshiped with the locals (I haven’t encountered God that much in worship in a LONG time.), walked the streets of the neighborhood and prayed for so many people (lots of healing, encounters and one man met Jesus for the first time), ate SOOOOO MUCH AMAZING local food, drank an insane amount of coffee, played endless games of hide and seek with our hosts 4-year old son and laughed so hard every single day that our cheeks hurt!!!

I love you Trinidad! You were so magical! It was such a gift from God that we got to make beautiful memories with you!

Until next time T&T….Ciao!
