Point me at the sky!
Friday I’m getting my gear and prepping for my little excursion.
Sunday evening, July 23rd at 6pm I should be on the first leg of my trip to Kalomo, Zambia in the African continent. Nashville>Chicago> London> Johannesburg> Livingston. Almost 24 hours in the air one way. From Livingston the group with Healing Hands International and I will drive to Kalomo where we will spend the next week.
As you guys know I’m going to be shooting the work of HHI in this area. When I return to the states I’m going to be cutting a series of videos for HHI to use as fund raising and awareness pieces.
While there I know that I’m going on a safari and seeing one of the worlds largest water falls, Victoria Falls. I could also be seeing some very serious situations where people are literally starving to death. I don’t know that I’m going to be seeing any of HHI’s medical missions but this could always change while there. The one thing I’m sure of is that I have no idea what to expect.
I don’t know that I’ll have much or any access to email and the web but if I do I’ll be checking my NON-scripps, off-shore account.
As you could guess I’m pretty excited. While I’m away I’ll ask you all to pray for Jules, Isaac and Caleb. I could breakdown right now thinking about how much I’m going to miss them. I feel that God has blessed this opportunity and I have no real apprehension towards the trip and work its self. Having always been something of a fatalist my prayers are with them first and always.
Aug 2nd I’ll begin the trip back home arriving in Nashville around 5:30 on Aug 3rd.
I’ll talk with you soon.
I love you.
