Howdy from Texas!

It is great to be able to greet you from Texas.  I was scheduled to arrive on the 18th.  But surprised my parents 4 days early with the help of some very dear friends.  This past week it has been really great to enjoy time with family and friends.

I want to take a moment and again thank all of you for joining me in this journey by following along on this blog.  It is really hard to believe that 9 months ago I was leaving for Ethiopia, beginning this trek.  It has been an incredible experience. I’ve been privileged to meet some wonderful people all across our world. I’ve seen people who live in extreme poverty, people without adequate and clean water, lives torn apart by HIV/AIDS, War, and persecution.  But I’ve also witnessed people who genuinely love and care for their neighbors.  People who live passionately and without abandon for the gospel in every country I’ve visited. People who are committed to holistically living and presenting the gospel.

It is my hope and passion to tell these stories.  To give voice to people who don’t have a voice.  This blog that I’ve kept during my travels has been a small way of doing that and I thank each of you for reading.  But there are more ways to share these stories.  Bright Hope World now has images and video to help tell these stories.  They will use these in their presentations, web content, pamphlets, and other ways to help raise awareness and support for their partnerships. But it doesn’t stop there.  I want to continue to give voice to these stories.  To help raise awareness on issues going on in our world.  To illustrate a holistic and biblical approach to living out the Gospel of Jesus.   And to be able to provide a connection point (through BHW) for people ready to engage.

So with that in mind, in the coming months, I will be working on brainstorming and creating some other avenues to tell these stories.  There are already several ideas currently being discussed that I’m really excited about and as the details come together I will let you know.

After Christmas I will resume with some blogposts from the trek, so be sure to continue to check in for more stories.

Thanks again and have a Merry Christmas.
