A Different Way to Cook

Today, The Link School went to go do some service work at a ranch in the mountains near Todos Santos. We got to go and see the ranch owner’s kitchen, and wow it was a humbling experience. His mom makes all of their food from scratch in a tiny outdoor kitchen on a river clay stove, powered by wood. She has no modern cooking tools, and this was so surprising considering how delicious her food was and really was eye opening to how some people live.

This showed me how privileged I am to live the way I do back home in the United States.

    Thanks, Steven. You were touched by their simple and grateful life. I was too through your writing about it. Thanks. I have experienced those kinds of people in my life as well, and it has affected every day that I live with the remembrance of their grace. I am happy for you. It will always be a good influence on your life.
    Warm thoughts.
