With great gratitude, humility and respect, Lynn and I decided to decline the invitation, ending this part of the journey.
I think what it all came down to was that I was afraid – afraid to venture that far from home. Kenya is pretty far away from Greenwich, Connecticut. I realize that this may be a startling admission from a prison minister in my own blog post – I’m sure this is leftover wreckage in my own imprisonment story (personal stuff that I’m hoping to deal with sometime soon).
