Frederick Buechner quote

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.
