In our conversation Jacob and I start by talking about our mutual interest in flying aircraft. We then dive into some of Jacobs travel adventures. One of the stories he shares is about a time he became very ill in India, was kidnapped(?), robbed, and dumped in a bad part of the city he was in. After locals lend him a little money he boards the train not knowing exactly where he is or where to go. Miraculously he makes it to his next contact who also happens to be a doctor. What a story!

Photojournalism with a Spiritual Twist

I loved our conversation about how to love others well in differing cultures by honoring them. As the Scripture says, “Honor all men.”
