I am no stranger to world travel. I was a flight attendant for many years, have visited many countries with my husband and absolutely adore traveling, trying new foods and experiencing other cultures.
However, in the summer of 2013, one trip completely wrecked me. Even though, by all accounts, the experience wasn’t so different than many I have had before on my travels. The difference was Jesus. Let me explain.
I was asked to lead one of our Global Outreach trips to Huánuco, Peru. We were there to do some building maintenance and support the staff and residents at a shelter for sexually abused women and children. I speak quite a bit of Spanish, so I felt like this was where God was calling me to serve.
