A few good men

Posted by Anonymous Wednesday, September 23, 2009 Labels: , , , , ,

On Tuesday, two of my dearest friends are departing Kansas City for year-long international journeys. John is headed to Nepal on an adventure of exploration, to experience the culture at its most real, to connect, to create, and to love on everything that comes his way (including, hopefully, a yak). David is headed to Guatemala to work as a legal intern with International Justice Mission, fighting sexual violence and human trafficking. Both of these courageous men have been dear friends to me for years, and I'm so proud of them for their upcoming ventures. If you want to learn more, you can read this piece by John that includes a bit more detail, and check out IJM's website to see more of what David will be doing. Also, you can support them in prayer or financially if you feel so led.

May your journeys bring peace and love to all you come in contact with, and may the Lord bring you back to this community in His due time.
