Preaching at the Destitute Camp in Africa, which is home to all of the lepers, blind, lame, mute, deaf, handicapped and otherwise underprivileged.

Best Thing that Happened to me in 2009:
Going to Africa for a Month

Thing (non-person) I Missed the Most While There:
Music (I didn't bring an mp3 player or radio. On purpose)

People I Missed the Most:

Favorite Person I Met in Africa Over the Age of 3:
Rashidi Nyasinde

Favorite Person I Met in Africa:
Ephram (Doto)

Scariest Moment In Africa:
On the safari when we went off-course and tried climbing a hill in the Land Rover. I should have fallen off the roof, and the Land Rover should have tipped backwards, landing on me. There is no reason other than God as to why this didn’t happen.

Favorite Place to Eat While in Africa:

Thing I Can Still Imagine if I Close my Eyes and Think About:
Feeling the tops of all of the little kids heads as we walked. I would put my hand on their heads and pray for them, and I can still remember exactly how they're hair and heads feel. Coming in a close second is the smell of the village we stayed in. It’s not a bad smell at all, just very unique.

Thing I Learned Most While In Africa:
That God is not just my God, or the God of Lincoln, CA. He truly is the God of the universe. That, and I had no idea how good I have it living here in California, with a roof over my head, food on my plate 3 times a day, adequate medical coverage, education, family and friends.

Favorite Single Experience in Africa:
Helping Doto get the help he needed when he had malaria. A close second would be every time we did a kids club in Kamala.


Biggest Thing I Learned in 2009:
Despite being in college and studying to be a pastor, I have no idea what I want to do with that when I graduate in December.
