Having been blessed to travel extensively,
one of my most beloved locations in the world is Chile!!
In 2007 I made a two week trip to the region and fell in love with the people and places I found!
In light of the massive 8.8 magnitude that struck Central Chile this morning Southwest of Santiago,
I wanted to take the time to compile a photo tribute to one of the places I love most!
As you enjoy these photos, please take the time to offer even a small prayer for the safety and well-being of the Chileans as they endure further aftershocks and look to begin the clean-up process!
