The time draws near for the 18 brave 2014 Vision Trippers to get packed up and ready to go. We will travel great distances in giant flying machines to visit people who, in some cases, have never ridden in a car or on a bicycle for that matter. Our lives will be changed by these encounters more than theirs, since such a journey changes your perspective.
But before all that, we must relinquish a day of our lives to getting there. We leave on Thursday morning, June 12 but will not step out onto the tarmac under the dark African sky until Friday night June 13!
So, keep us in your prayers and pray for those we will visit. Old friends and strangers we will meet along the way. We will worship with people living lives so unlike our own that we may as well be different species. God intends to teach us something new about the world and our place in it during this Vision Trip to Tanzania. What will that be?
Off we go to find out!
