"I'm what the world considers to be a phenomenally successful man. And I've failed much more than I've succeeded. And each time I fail, I get my people together, and I say, "Where are we going?" And it starts to get better." - Calvin Trager
Tuesday, January 27, 2004 I'm really going to Ghana!
Not that I have the plane tickets bought or anything, but I've been hashing it all out with James Sarpei and it's really going to happen ... I've even downloaded the VISA forms from the embassy.
I'll be working a lot with doing HIV/AIDS prevention training for youth ... but I'll also be traveling all over the country (it's only about as big as Oregon) meeting, living, working and worshipping with all sorts of people. I'll be taking a digital video camera and my computer with me so I can record what is going on and burn it into CDs/DVDs that they can use for trainings and that we can use for education/fundraising back here.
It's hard to believe that in 4 1/2 months I'll be in Africa!

"Christ's example is being
demeaned by the church if they ignore the new leprosy,
which is AIDS. The church is the sleeping giant here.
If it wakes up to what's really going on in the rest
of the world, it has a real role to play. If it doesn't,
it will be irrelevant."
