January 10th marked the official first day of Not for Sale’s Third Fellowship Session. We warmly welcome Jono Hirt from Australia, Shane Vermooten from South Africa and David Quimby from Illinois. These three boys are embarking on one of the greatest adventures of their life. One of my favorite authors, Paulo Coelho, said “Be brave. Take risks. Nothing can substitute experience.” I am grateful for the risks these three have taken and for the sacrifices not only they, but also their family and friends have made in order to make their dreams a reality. None of them would be here without the support of their loved ones.
The next six months are going to be an incredible experience -not only for these three new fellows- but also for me. Already these three have challenged me, encouraged me, and made me laugh hysterically. I have high expectations for this group, and look forward to reading their many entries.
Thanks again for all of your love and support.
Together, we can re-abolish slavery.
