Frederick Buechner quote

There are people with all sorts of enthusiasms and creativities which are not often enough made use of or even recognized because the tendency is not to rock the boat but to keep on doing things the way they have always been done.   -Originally published in Telling Secrets

Gary Neil Gupton has travelled to Guatemala on mission trips to build houses, distribute food and spread the love. He sailed on the 18th century replica ship Endeavour. He took a walkabout in Key West with the spirit of Hemingway – to the Southernmost Point. He explored southern Spain, Panama and Puerto Rico, by the canal and through rainforests. But his heart will always return to Guatemala where the children run barefoot – and teach us how to fly.
