Who I Am

A young man martyred for his faith, once said, “He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose.” In 2005, my wife and I spent the summer at the Bwindi Community Health Centre, at the entrance to the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest in southwest Uganda. What we saw forever changed the way we viewed life and death, success and significance.

Returning from a place where we saw too many children dying for want of a few pennies worth of medicine, the lens through which we saw life was forever altered. From that point on, every decision for our lives and futures has been evaluated in light of what is significant, rather than what the world calls “success.”
