floydius it's almost like you've got nothing better to do

16Jun/09Off

to infinity… and beyond.

As many of you know, God has blessed me with the opportunity to visit Nicaragua for six weeks this summer.

My flight is scheduled to leave Thursday, and if the Lord wills, I’ll return July 30th. I’m going to be assisting my on-again-off-again roommate this year, Phil, with some documentary/P.R. work he’s doing for the Misión para Cristo in Jinotega. In addition, we’re scheduled to spend some time in the jungle (via Río Coco) helping to scout out a location for a new christian school. From what I can tell, this is going to be a real adventure, and I’m ready to carpe the diem.

I’d like to share some of my personal goals for this trip:

  • Prayer. I want to be intentional about praying often. I need to learn how to do it in a way that both God and I find meaningful. I see this as an opportunity to detach from some of the inanities that consume my focus and I don’t want to waste it. Feel free to share some of your insights about prayer, specifically in terms of practical application.
  • Spanish. I intend to become much more proficient as a speaker. So all of my friends who can… write me in Spanish!
  • Manliness. I would like to gain more confidence in the outdoors. I don’t know how long we’ll be in the jungle, but I’m totally looking forward to it. I’m not comfortable with snakes, lack of medical facilities, or navigation. I wouldn’t mind gaining some outdoor survival skills (in a non-survival scenario).

    In addition to my goals, I would not be sad if I came back in better shape… and maybe just a little tan. : )

    Please feel free encourage me with as many e-mails as you want. Also, if you’d like a postcard from Nicaragua, send me your address and I’ll do my best to make sure you get one! I’m going to be posting here as often as I can (with pictures, of course.)

    Hasta pronto!
