What began as a simple Mission trip, became a watershed moment for my life, when In 2001 I set out to visit my first undeveloped (third world) country. I had made friends with some guys from PNG and I really wanted to visit them. Well I was so confronted by the poverty and the struggle of daily life I became determined that I was going to help somehow, I had absolutely no idea of how just that I had to do something. The starkness of their lives compared with mine just a few hours away by plane was so different, yet the reality was in time to become even more stark.
