I am back in Amsterdam, on my way into Nairobi. I had a good flight over the pond and sat next to a man who I knew of but had never met. He lived in MIssissippi when I lived in Alabama! It truly is a small, small world. I wrapped up my time in Kansas City and enjoyed my visit with the Church of the Harvest family. It's interesting that I learn whenever I teach. I guess that's why we are urged to teach as a means of personal growth.
This is the first year in a while that I did not attend a Pittsburgh Pirates baseball game. I did see two games this season, one in Seattle and one in Chicago, but I miss seeing my local team. The Pirates have fallen on hard times and have not had a winning season since 1992, which means they have the longest losing streak of any professional sports team in the world at this point. i guess it's good to be number one in something, but a distinction they would probably rather do without.
I have to run to shower and get ready for my next flight. They told me that there are 200 empty seats on this flight, so I will have my choice of seats. That's good because I have a lot of work to do on the plane. I will write you from Nairobi.
