In some side streets you see houses and cars, some even covered.  Up the street, garbage strewn, and shockingly, lots of plastic.  

We attended a Pentecostal School that is a mission from Toronto.  Great work in giving these poor children an opportunity, but it comes with a price: let go of your root tradition (idol worship).  I am trying to appreciate each religious tradition and not colonize.  

I guess I/we need to clean up our religious garbage: eg. tendency to feel I am better.

is not such a notion of superiority the basis of all missionary activity? Desde la perspectiva de los de arriba - usually with armies and weaponry to help convince when moral persuasion doesn't work. the pilgrim is willing to learn from the walk - even when he carries a big camera! I learn from your journey.
