South Sudan Project

Three local friends, representing two charitable organizations, planned, funded and executed a humanitarian trip to South Sudan. They navigated political complexities, suffered body and soul, and were never without armed guards as their hosts. But the benefits and rewards far outweighed any inconvenience. Lives, hearts and minds were forever changed. (This last sentence should be your reflection? – ) I loved working on this project and sincerely hope that my own life, heart and mind were changed – if even a little – in the process.

Reflection

What I learned doing this project

Things I’ll never take for granted again: Trips to the ER. Milk in my fridge. Access to education. Tampons. Clothes. Balloons. Safety.
