My World Wind Tour

Traveling to South Africa last month was really tight and a real humbling experience. I went with the young adult ministry at my church and had an engaging interaction with South African culture. As well as looking at the tourist site of three cities: Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town we also had opportunities to interact with young adult South African Christians. We did a balance of being both tourists and ministers of God's word having the opportunity to both feed and council refugees from Mozambique and also have time to buy souvenirs at a flea market.
I also had the opportunity to travel to Montreal a few weeks ago for the International Society for Augmentative and Alternative Communication biannual conference. I was able to do a presentation with fellow members of the AAC-RERC Writers Brigade, which went well and I am now Co-Vice President of the United States Society for Augmentative and Alternative Communication, which is pretty cool. Also the company that I worked for, Dynavox Technologies INC., paid for my whole trip, which was also cool. I also got upgraded to business class on the way back, which was a bonus! Check out my pictures of my trip.
