I asked Marc Shifano, “How did your trip to Swaziland impact you?”
 
He answered, “I’d read the statistics. But then I traveled to Swaziland and I held a statistic and talked to a statistic and sang to a statistic. It was totally different.”
Marc has returned focused on living his life in light of eternity. He says, “I’ve heard that if things don’t change, Swaziland will cease to exist by 2050. I want to give my life so that things change.”

What problem is big enough that you want to give your life to change it?
