Wow, has the time flown by. It seems like yesterday that I made the decision to go on this trip and now we are almost a month before the trip. I thought that I would drop by and give you a quick update.
This week’s mission has been all about immunizations. What I thought was going to be an easy task has proved me wrong. It’s been almost 11 years since my last missions trip. The travel center that I have used previously has closed and since my records are so old they are not on our state’s immunizations website. This has caused some setbacks this week, but the good news is that I have an appointment with my regular doctor on Tuesday. Please pray that we can get these straighten out within the next week.
By the end of next week, I should hopefully have more information on our travel plans, itinerary, packing list, and any other needs for the trip.
How can you help?
Most importantly, I need your prayers that God will work in and through me during the trip.
Secondly, purchasing a T-Shirt or Ladies Tank. (Pre-Orders Only. All profits go directly to my trip.) The deadline to place and pay for your order is 5/21/17.
Third, any financial support you can give will be greatly appreciated. The deadline for tax deductible gifts has passed, however I can still accept non tax deductible gifts. This money would be used towards immunizations and associated travel cost.
Have you ever thought your dreams were too big? Have you stopped dreaming at all? That was me until about two weeks ago.
About 6 months ago, I was so frustrated with social media that I just wanted to delete all my accounts. I knew of a guy that was social media genius so, I signed Cynthia (my wife) and I up for his online coaching group called Adventure Social. We’ve gotten so much more than social media coaching! It’s really about mindset. Through Adventure Social, we were given the opportunity to go on an adventure in Orlando, FL for 3 days. We had to trust people that we had only met online to setup this adventure. All we knew was that we were staying in house with a bunch of strangers in Orlando for some training and some special adventures. We left for Florida and did not even
have an address for where we were staying that night. We arrived that evening to meet people from all over the US and a couple from the UK. There was various ages, backgrounds, lifestyles, races, and religions. An common thing happened, we bonded within 3 days and these other 25 people are family now. Our major topic for the weekend was Dreams. It was just a life changing and the shot in the arm that I needed to dream again.
My mentor and coach, John-Erik says:
Turn you mess into a message.
The purpose of this blog is to tell my story as great or messy as it may be and to take you on the journey of my life. We will journey together through my health recovery, travel, missions, new hobbies, and whatever happens along the path. It’s my hope that I can provide you with insight and inspiration to follow your dreams.
