Bob's Thoughts: Trip Summary

If you've been following our blog for the past couple of weeks you've gotten to read about my experiences visiting Nigeria as part of a Wycliffe Associates volunteer trip installing satellite internet systems in remote locations. Getting to participate on this trip was a real privilege. 
First, it was a great experience professionally, as I got to work with a very interesting piece of equipment and got to work on translator's computers, configuring them to use the equipment and in general making sure they were running well. On a more personal level, though, this trip was invaluable for me to be able to see Nigeria firsthand (it's the first time I've ever visited there, or anywhere in Africa) and get a feel for what Cynthia and I should be preparing for in the coming months before we head over there. There were some things about Nigeria that I was surprised to learn, but overall I was very glad to be there and it only made me more excited to get to live and work there in the future. It is a beautiful country, and I met many passionate, godly men and women that it will be a joy to serve and to work alongside of. I had a terrific time, and I'm glad that God brought this opportunity to me.
