During my college years, I took a year off to travel. During that year, I took a trip that changed my life. My best friend and I planned a three-month missionary trip to Africa. We spent six weeks in the jungles of the Congo and six weeks in Kenya, a more modern African country. Plans developed smoothly until departure; there was a problem. I had fallen madly in love with a girl named Jennifer. She was a southern belle with a charm and character that wrapped me around her little finger.
