In April I decided to go on an eight-day trip to Central America with a group from my church.
At first I was hesitant because I thought I may be starting a new job. But my wife really encouraged me to consider going. Because as she said "if not now, when?"
So here I am, 14-months into unemployment, and I have decided to travel to Belize for an 8-day adventure. I am going with a team of 10 guys and we'll be working to build relationships with the local men and encourage them in their roles as fathers, husbands and leaders in their community.
I leave early Friday morning and will be returning the evening of Friday, August 12. Although I'll be surrounded by alligator-infested waters and tropical beaches, I'll still be blogging! If you want to follow the progress of my trip, you can do so on our church blog: http://woodridgebelize.wordpress.com/
For those of you interested in posting jobs while I'm away, you can find KaryD on twiiter or e-mail her here at firstname.lastname@example.org
See you in a week!
