This shirt came from Poland in the summer of 2009. I’ve had the opportunity to visit Poland twice, once in the winter and once in the summer. Both of these visits were to Krakow, a city in the south of the country, and both were with the Holmes family, some of my favorite people. The second visit was in the summer and I was there for nine weeks. During that time I taught English in schools, university classes, and a coffeehouse. I also worked with an international church, leading in worship and participating in Bible studies. Most of all, I learned by living. It was a wonderful opportunity to live life with people from all over the world, gaining new perspectives and having my heart changed. I think one of the people I learned the most from was Charissa, a medical student from Malaysia. This kid loves Jesus with her whole heart. She believed that hope was found in no one else and told everyone she met about Him. I dearly hope our paths will cross again (maybe in Malaysia!!). This is also where my relationship with geocaching began (thanks Christian!) and I’ve been hooked ever since.
