And the beat goes on...

Well, I'm back again.

I thought this blog would die out once I returned home from Mozambique (for which it was created) but my stats counter is telling me that the numbers of viewers is climbing...

But high numbers is not the only reason to post something here. You really should have something to say, right?

So, first of all an update.

Remember that veranda foundation that I helped lay out before I left Moz? Here all you can see are the holes for the pillar foundations.

Well, the guys over there have raised the pillars and put on the roof, so here is the finished product:

What's that saying from the movie "The A Team"? "I love it when a plan comes together!"

But that's not the only thing that's been building...

Ever since I returned home I've had guys coming up to me and saying, "I'd like to do something like what you did. Would you ever take out a group? If you do, count me in..."

So here's the deal...I'm thinking of making another trip.
Maybe even a few of them.

I might even start an organization that takes out trained technical people (mechanics, builders, doctors, computer techs...whatever) for short term projects. That would be anything from 1 week to 1 month, depending on how far we're travelling.

How about you? Got game?

You'll have to pay your own way.

It will not always be the best living conditions.

It will stretch you in ways you've never been stretched before.

But it will change your life.

To get an idea of what these mission trips could look like, go back to the beginning of this blog and read the postings of my last trip. Then drop me a line if you're interested in hearing more. The e-mail address is
