I feel Like Tom Cruise!
Cameras were flashing from every direction as a crowd of about 25 exited local people surrounded me! Someone in the crowd shouted, “Where are you from”! I replayed, I’m an American, and at once they all started shouting, “America!” over and over again. Then almost all of them started to have a picture taken with me! It was beyond crazy!
It had been one of the longest mornings of my life! I had just gotten done with a three week scouting trip to the capital and two other big cities here. The entire CT team and I blitzed the College campuses in a large city with Prayer. This was really cool because there will be 4 CT teams working full time down there next year. It was a lot of fun and I experienced so many cool and exciting things; I bet I could write a book about it someday. However, I was tired and it was finally time to go back to my home. I was looking forward to a nice relaxing train ride for the next 23 hours. Too bad it was going to be everything but relaxing.
I was so tired and all I could think of was sleeping, but within 5 minutes of being on the train, right until the very end, I was totally overtaken by excited Asian people. It was like the train was stopping at a new station every hour and then everyone but me and Costa would get off and then a whole new group of people would crowd on the train. Then the fun of really excited people would start all over again! This process continued for almost 23 hours straight! As the cameras were flashing from all around me I thought to myself only in Asia!
Needless to say sleep was very scarce on this 23 hour trip! However, it was an adventure that I will never forget! My next big adventure will be when I come home in about two weeks, I can’t wait! However it’s a very busy time, please pray that all the preparation goes smoothly.
