Sheer beauty

“For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities –  his eternal power and divine nature – have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.” – Romans 1:20

I just wanted to share with you some of the natural beauty that surrounds us here. I was able to take these photos this past week… some are a series of photos that I then stitched together to create the panoramic view. Last night, I got to witness perhaps the most beautiful sunset I’ve ever seen… and fortunately I had my camera! Click on the panoramic images below to view them larger in a new window.




The above three images are the spectacular view from the top of the hill that our guesthouse sits on. These were taken from the behind the house of the missionaries who started Bongolo Hospital. I’m fairly certain that the vista overlooks both Gabon and Congo since we are so near the border.


As our friend, Meghan, has said… “Sunsets are God’s personal gift to me.” And this one just about tops them all!

  1. Copies of that sunset photo would make great Christmas presents. (hint, hint) It kind of reminds me of The Lion King, except cooler. 🙂

  2. So beautiful! Just amazing…

    I’m praying for you guys! Your blog has been so insightful. Thank you for being so open and real about this experience!

  3. There don’t seem to be any sufficient words. The best I can do is…gorgeous. Thanks so much for sharing. I loved the picture with just the trunk of the really tall tree.

    Such an interesting comparison to the snow village that we’re in!
