"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
Monday, July 04, 2005 If you haven't already, sign the Live 8 list ! I know Amy Porterfield was at the concert in Philadelphia (the closest I got was being caught in Live 8 traffic driving to Cape May, NJ from Washington, D.C.). Anybody else see one of the concerts.
We're with Robin's family (11 of us total) at a house in Cape May, NJ this week. The weather is wonderful -- 80s -- the kids are having a great time playing with each other (Schroedter and Hayden with their cousins Adrian and Olivia) and everything is wonderful in general. A great vacation. Tonight we'll watch fireworks on the beach.
Got an email from James Sarpei, the amazing guy I lived with in Ghana for six weeks last summer who is the founder and executive director of CENCOSAD - an NGO doing AIDS prevention, reproductive health and capacity building. He and his wife Elfrida are hoping to visit in the fall and stay with us for awhile. I am very excited ... not just to be able to return the hospitality but just to see them again!

"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."
