Andean Adventures: An Unexpected Search for Meaning, Purpose and Discovery Across Three Countries

About the Book:

Over the past three and a half years, it's been hard to find much inspiration and motivation in public life. The slow, yet systematic building of walls - both real and imagined, has caused us to become isolated from the other side of these walls.

This long feared, yet poorly anticipated global pandemic has placed us into a contaminated and chaotic Coronaverse where international discourse and exchanges are frozen and uncertain. We find ourselves in a very real and tangible state of social isolation.

I am offering this book to recall simpler times. I want to remind us how national service in the Peace Corps and nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) abroad offered a chance to help. When service abroad offered a chance to find meaning and purpose.

Andean Adventures is for the younger generations who have seen their opportunities and futures seized from them. It is also for those with loved ones derailed by the disruption and the deformed public discourse.

Are you considering life options overseas once we get through to the other side of this Coronaverse? Are you interested in finding opportunities for greater meaning and purpose? Are you interested in a story of failure, redemption, challenges, faith, and perseverance?

Independent of which of the above peaks your interest, I have stories to share that will hopefully shed some light on unexpected life lessons. My life took a direction I had never anticipated from the start, and I served overseas thinking that I would then return to a normal life. That proved not to be the case.

I was shot at, arrested, and threatened with expulsion. I also encountered the most unexpected surprises along the way. There are lessons and experiences that are informative and instructive, representing an important slice of my life story and that of many wonderful people.

The Andean Adventures here are the first which really determined my life, and although I would go on to others, these were formative and decisive.
