When we returned from our trip to Austria, we dropped off Tim’s parents at the Munich Hautbonhof (train station) for their 7 day excursion to Venice and Cinque Terra, Italy. We then had 3 days of relative peace and quiet before my friend Christine Wood and her friend Evelyn Cervantes flew in from Africa for a 3 days blitz in Bavaria.
I first met Chris in 2006 through PWOC, the military women’s ministry, when I served on the international board. She facilitated a week long leadership academy for the board members and this was the time I became “hooked” on leadership and organizational growth. From my further conversations with Chris, I enrolled in Azusa Pacific University’s Operation Impact masters degree program and spent the next 3 years traveling the world and learning about leadership in a non-profit setting. Chris served as a mentor on my thesis paper and has become a great friend over the years. When she heard we had moved to Germany, it seemed perfect that she pit stop here before heading on to Prague for her vacation. Traveling with Chris was Evelyn, a photo journalist who accompanied Chris to Jos, Nigeria to document the work they were doing with the community in Jos. Evelyn graciously volunteered to do a photo shoot of the girls on Monday evening just as the sun was setting. To see more photos of the girls, click on the box above.
