Photographs Changing Lives

While doing mission work in the Dominican Republic, I found that the young kids all around me had a passion for photography. I didn't realize it immediately, but these kids do not have any mirrors in their homes and never get to see what they look like. So, a friend and I bought a portable printer and gave these kids photos that I took of them. And after we gave a Mother and her son a couple of photos, they sat in their home, simply looking at the photos for hours.
