So… Can you guess who is going with me to Ethiopia?

Posted by on Mar 20, 2012 | 6 comments

Jason cannot join me on our first trip to court, so I was looking for a travel buddy who wanted to experience our beloved Ethiopia. A good friend of mine was hoping to join me, but we found out this weekend that it looks pretty much impossible. While my flesh was disappointed, I trusted that God knew what He was doing, and that He has a reason for this. I also began to pray for the perfect travel companion.

So…. who gets to join me?

Let me give you some hints…

By bringing this person, the number of awkward, hysterical, unforgettable, unbelievable  stories of this trip just multiplied 10 fold. S/he is a passionate person, who loves to travel, experience new things, take adventures,  and tell stories about their life. S/he  loves to talk “politics”.  S/he is a “close talker” (as in, s/he is  usually 18-24″ away from you while talking… Heck, s/he needs to make sure you are paying attention). S/he tends to assume that everyone else is on her/his same time schedule and has plenty of time to sit and listen to her/his “stories”. Her/his heart breaks for those in need, both in our community and abroad. S/he volunteers every week, helping 2 blind/disabled individuals do their shopping and errand running, taking them to doctor’s appointments and simply being a companion that they look forward to seeing every week.  S/he was thrilled and filled with both “relief and joy” when I shared that our “retirement plan” is to sell everything we have and travel the world, focusing on loving and serving the “least of these”, while also enjoying the sights, smells, and tastes of foreign lands (oh, and come “home” periodically to visit with our kids and grandkids),  and then eventually drop dead in the midst of it all. S/he craves  justice.  S/he often shares that if s/he could live her/his whole life over again, s/he would have become a “gourmet chef and opera singer”. And finally, Jason is convinced that this person will cause some type of  “international indecent” while in Ethiopia.

Who is s/he????

The first person to make the correct guess, will win any sticker or photo of their choice (visit our “Store” to see your choices). If I have already told you who is joining me, sorry, but you don’t get to play:) I don’t know how long I will let the “game” go for, as I don’t even know if anyone will play:) I guess, if several people play, then I will end it tomorrow at midnight. If nobody takes a shot at guessing, then it may have to linger. So, come one, take a guess…..

Leave your guess here as a comment.

Love,

Kameron
