Travelogue: Into Africa
I will be traveling to Rwanda and Kenya October 27 through November 16 with my pastor, Father Ken Schmidt, and his associate Sharon Froom, a licensed therapist. They have developed a worldwide reputation for their work in trauma recovery and were invited by the Rwandan Catholic Church to provide workshops for priests, educators, and health care workers who work with survivors of the 1994 genocide.
My role on this trip is to document their work. This will be my first trip to Africa and my first gig as a "foreign correspondent." I am keeping a separate blog called: Trauma Recovery Associates in Rwanda, taking photos and videos, and writing stories that will be published subsequent to our trip.
Wish us a bon voyage. We leave for our two-day journey to Africa on Wednesday.
