Now that I've graduated from college, I'm about to embark on an adventure I've been anticipating ever since I was a little kid, traveling to the African nation of Malawi this coming Monday, the 14th of December.
My dad's best friend from law school serves as Malawi's Secretary of Health and Education for the East African republic of Malawi, and has invited me to spend the next two months with him in his homeland.
Since graduation, I've worked as an apprentice at a well drilling company, to learn how to fix and service water wells to be of some use to the people of Malawi, and read and reread works on political theory, Western, Classical, and African history, and Scripture so I may be of some interest to an African statesman that is the Honorable George T. Chaponda.
My life, come December 14th, is a blank slate, and while I have little idea how God will use me on the dark continent, I have grand hopes He will give me the strength to reach this tiny landlocked republic for His glorious purposes.
I am stepping into a hotbed of political instability once I get to Malawi, so I hope you'll follow along in my blog on all the trouble I'm bound to get into.
Thanks, take care, and God bless!
