Sometimes in life you meet a fork in the road. One way looks familiar, similar to where you’ve already been. The other is usually completely unknown. Most often, God is calling us down that unknown path.
I first landed in Zambia in 2005. A 2 week trip with Overland Missions completely wrecked my life. Once I returned home, I’d finish my last year of college, get a job in the suburbs of Chicago as a music teacher, and keep serving in my church. That was plan. It seemed like a great plan. God had other ideas.
