I’m leaving on a jet plane…
I can’t believe it is finely here. Our trip to Guatemala! I will be traveling with myself and four friends to La Perla in the Quiche Region of Guatemala. I leave tomorrow morning at 5:00am. I am excited for this journey because I believe it is going to ignite an even brighter fire in me to constantly live a life of meaning, impact and community. I am so committed to bringing the Downtown Credo to Austin and this is another pivotal step in the process. On our journey, I will be meeting the coffee growers which we/you support with your coffee donations. I may even get to pick some of your beans!
I will be documenting this trip via journal, video and blog, so you can be part of the process too. I go with an open heart and mind. Thank you for all your support and encouragement, as I could not have gotten to this place alone.
P.S. I included this picture of my luggage because I wanted to document this rare occasion of how little I packed. I am a classic over packer. This is me with a luggage weight limit of 30lbs. I came in at 28.9, room to spare!
P.P.S .I have included a link to the downtown Credo’s web site where you can buy coffee from our family of growers in La Perla, if you aren’t already. If you drink coffee and you don’t know how it is getting to you and who it is effecting along the way…start asking questions… you don’t have to buy our coffee, but be a conscious consumer. Reject apathy and live a life of meaning, impact and community.
See you soon.
