Talking About Books

We have traveled from sea to shining sea, traversing some of the most beautiful terrain in the world, covering almost half of this glorious country. We have presented in daycares, academies, churches, universities, high schools, elementary schools, nursing homes, and in the comfort of individuals homes.

We have stayed in marvelous houses, humble apartments, mansions with gates and guards, farmhouses, chalets, homes on the beach, abodes in hills, and dwellings in the desert. In Nebraska we made snow angels. In Oklahoma, we castrated calves. While in Georgia we cut the leg of our pants and threw our shoes into the Atlantic, only to repeat it again in the Pacific. In Arizona we picked grapefruit. While in Mexico we ate tacos. In California we rode tandem and sea kayaked. We have stayed in company of consulates, teachers, students, auditors, farmers, administrators, and entrepreneurs.

The lives we live, they are all so different, but yet they are all connected. In many ways we aren’t all that different. We all feel love and pain. All of us hope and we are all searching to find something to put that hope into. We are all void and we all need a Savior.

what an epic journey. Even I enjoyed it from afar, just from the snippets on the internet
