My wife, Chrissy (author of Into the Mud: Inspiration for Everyday Activists, True Stories of Africa) and I frequently speak together.
We tell stories from our years in Nicaragua, China, and South Africa, telling of tractor rides with malaria, baseball princesses, cross-cultural mishaps, crashing motorcycles, bribing border officials, and lessons from our friends in hard places. Themes we often speak on include international poverty, personal risk, microfinance, cross-cultural communication, leadership, and Christian faith. Together, Chrissy and I have written This Ordinary Adventure: Settling Down Without Settling.
I also speak on these themes alone, as well as on the effective use of social media for good, for both nonprofits and individuals.
