A couple of days ago I posted a blog that asked the question: After you return home from the World Race (or any life-changing mission trip), what do you do?  Without a plan, the default is to slide back into old habit patterns, inoculated to the pain you’ve seen.
 
So, this blog is an attempt to begin answering the question.  I’d love to get your ideas for how we can improve upon this – make it an open source effort.  We need to get some more links.  Please contact me with your ideas and I’ll add them to this. At some point soon we’ll spin it off into its own site.

Coffee lovers
James Spano (see Cup to Cup Coffee) started a high quality coffee business in Savannah.  He is open to taking on apprentices and makes this offer: ” come over here to Savannah and spend time with
me. I’d have somewhere for you to stay (probably in a spare room I hope to one
day have) and give you what information you want or need in exchange for
helping me at the shop.”
