One of the huge ways that my Mom influenced my life was by instilling in me a love for travel and seeing the world. Admittedly, I have traveled much more extensively internationally than I have in our own country – something which I think will change over the next 30 years. Much, if not most, of this travel has been mission oriented over the last 30 years.
I wanted to create a post that chronicled the countries I’ve had the great fortune of visiting – if for no other reason than to help me remember as my brain cells begin to deteriorate. There is much beauty in this world. I’ve witnessed it both in the scenery and in the faces of the people I’ve seen all around the world. This is a good reminder to me as our world becomes a scarier place each day and as travel becomes more hazardous.
It has been a joy to see so much of this world. It will be even more so to see the wonders of the new heaven and the new earth that God has created for those who are called by His Name.
