Welcome to Quetzaltenango (aka Xela)! Not much time today to write much but I am very excited to share with you this mini photoshoot I did with Trama Textiles last week! Trama Textiles is a women's association of indigenous weavers in Guatemala. The belt and clutch I modeled here are just two of their beautiful products. I actually took a weaving course with them and interviewed one of their community representatives. I'll share that later this week. As for now, have a beautiful week and remember to share God's grace with all, especially when it seems hardest.

2 Corinthians 12:8-9
Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness. Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.

Happy Travels,
