Doesn’t it seem ironical that a trip of 5,000 miles will produce change in folks that they should have been able to experience in their own backyard?
I’m hearing from many who went on this last trip to Brasil how they’ve been radically transformed by the events they experienced on the trip. This is life changing stuff, not your typical, everyday, run of the mill type of stuff. Its quite exciting.
I lament that they (and me) and anyone else looking for spiritual transformation have to go to a place like Ubaúna in order to start the process. Maybe that speaks to the issue at hand here in the U.S. of how we take God-stuff so for granted. The power is the same, the venue is different.
