His text lit up my phone like a Christmas tree. “Can we meet for breakfast?” It came from one of the guys who went to Africa with me and it seemed important, so I swallowed my fatigue and lack of coherence and said sure.
Ben and I had just spent 10 days in Burkina Faso, West Africa. We went with Envision and we traveled in the bush, the wild places of Africa with no access to phone or internet. We built a church, saw some wells our church helped to dig and met some of the most incredible people. Coming home, I was looking forward to spending time with my family and catching up with them, but Ben seemed to want to meet urgently.
