I remember Jerry shelter from our own thru-hike 4 years ago. Similar conditions, but no snow in the morning!

Dear Deb,

You are amazing! Showering you with prayers on this life-changing journey. You are changing ours as well. Thank you for your strength and your dedication to the poor in Liberia. Having come from the third world, I am moved that you would think of them years after you have already served them. We are so blessed here in America, we don't even know it.

thanks all for the encouraging comments! It means the world to me.

we are blessed and although I spent a lot of money to be on the Trail, I am reminded that people sleep outdoors and live without adequate food and clean water in many parts of the world. the Trail really makes you appreciate a bed and a hot shower. I often find myself humming that song from The Jungle Book-“The Bare Necessities of Life” :)
