// Month 1: Cartagena
We worked with a Youth Center, helping teach English and teach Sunday school. We lived and worked with kids in the most dangerous part of Cartagena. The kids who we loved on have seen violence, drugs and gangs. Our hearts were broken for these kids, but we were encouraged by the family we worked along side that bring impact. There were always kids outside of our gate wanting to play with us and soak up all our attention. We were only there for a month, and there were three deaths that happened within a mile radius. We had the opportunity to go our and pray over others and for us to tell them why we are here.
// The culture in Cartagena was more Island Caribbean. The food was amazing and fresh, it was hot all the time, and the people talked very fast and shortened all their words. My Spanish was more like charades.
// We lived close to the Old City, which had beauty in every corner. I lived in Charleston, and no offense, but Charleston has nothing compared to this place!
