To say this trip didn’t pan out the way I expected is an understatement. I envisioned a trip filled with ministry, surfing, and meeting awesome people. In reality, I ended up spending nearly a month practically just laying on a couch after an accident with swollen feet, infections, and gnarly bruises on my knees. But with all of those negatives nothing was cooler or more faith strengthening than seeing the Bali South English Cong come through, virtually all strangers and take such good care of me. It’s always been the best part of traveling, seeing the brotherhood that we have. Anywhere you go you’ll meet people, whether locals or other travelers just passing through. All of us complete strangers, becoming close friends. Going over the top for one another. It’s amazing. And makes some of the best memories. Because even though I can’t say this trip went anyway I expected it to, I can say it far exceeded my expectations as to how many genuinely great people I’ve met. It makes an already amazing life that much better and I can’t express my gratefulness to be part of Jehovah’s Organization and experience that. Oh and here’s another sunset photo from Uluwatu, cause it’s probably the best place in the world to surf (if only it was empty) and watch the sun go down with a Bintang and chicken satay.
