This is where we’re headed.
I grew up watching The Real World. Long before reality television took over the networks MTV kind of invented a new kind of genre. They put 10 strangers in a house together, brought in a film crew, and recorded what happened.
As our team met tonight at the airport, then dinner, then the hotel… it felt a little like the first episode of every season of The Real World. Strangers met for the first time, shared a little about life, and made small talk.
But, just like the TV show, things are about to get very real.
In just two days I leave on a 10-day trip to Zimbabwe with World Vision’s 30 Hour Famine and a grip of youth workers. As you can imagine I’m a wild mix of preparation, wrapping up projects, enjoying the final day of the kids Christmas break, and a variety of lists. (Yes. This post was on my list.)
Here are 10 things I’m looking forward to about the Zimbabwe Trip
On January 11th, I’m joining a team of youth workers on a 1-week trip to Bulawayo, Zimbabwe.
Wait. What? Where? Why? Zimbabwe?
