When I was a younger Christian, I thought older folks were stuffy for primarily listening to Christian music.
Then as I grew, I found myself also gravitating towards tunes that glorified Jesus or encouraged me to do so.
What can I say? My spirit and thirst for Him is satisfied the more I`m exposed to the things of God.
Favorite Foreign Food: Sukiyaki with raw egg (yes, the Japanese have made me a believer in the raw egg haha)
Scariest travel moment: Finding out that you need a special visa to enter China at the immigration booth in Shanghai airport!
Travel Tip: Always have your inn/hotel/hostel caretaker write down your hotel name and address in their native language for you to show someone when lost. Believe me, it helps!
