leaving one’s comfort zone
Someone I know from church, Ben, is going to Kenya (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kenya) on a mission through Presbyterian Church (USA) (http://www.pcusa.org/) and Church World Service (http://www.churchworldservice.org/).
Leaving one’s comfort zone to engage in a humanitarian project is something that I can admire. Nonetheless I know I wouldn’t do it and I could come up with hundreds of excuses not to do it.
Take a look at his blog (http://bensnipes.blogspot.com/2010/06/getting-ready/) where Ben will write about his experiences in Kenya. He’s currently asking for small donations to come up with $4500 that he still needs for this mission trip. If you can, go to his site and click on the first link on the right of the page, which should take you to the General Assembly Mission Council (http://gamc.pcusa.org/) website. If you have any questions, contact Ben Snipes (firstname.lastname@example.org).
As I mentioned, Ben’s trip is something I can admire and this is the only reason why I’m helping him out.
