Finally, my takeaways.

I've gone through a long thought process since I've been back from Africa and have had time to think through all that I saw and heard and felt. I've looked at my photographs a dozen times to help me understand what my takeaways are, you know, how I can best describe the trip in a few sentences (close to impossible). Here are some I'm thinking about and the pictures that go with them.  What do you think?

1) The local church is the hope of the world.

Clean water.  The church being the church.

See last line on sign: Minister: All Believers. 

The church caring for orphans.
2)  Every one of us is important to God.  Shoes or no shoes, white skin or black skin, here or there.

3)  The Big Bang Theory simply doesn't make any sense once you look around.

4)  Pay attention to the journey, not just the destination.

5)  A great team makes all the difference.

6)  Don't eat just any piece of fruit you find on the ground.

7)  Warthog tastes like chicken.  Not really.  More like pig.


Marinated Warthog Fillet.  No one would order that!
8)  Don't ever take Tamiflu.  Long story.  No pictures.

  1. This post is great. Profound. Then hilarious. Proving in its own progression that it's the journey, not the destination.
