"Pray for the Hartzler family. Their youngest has left the church and no longer believes that Christ died for her sins. She buys clothes at the mall. Tongue pierced, nose as well. Her shirt shows her belly where a ring of gold sprouts. We pray she will remember that her Lord's side was pierced, that His crown held no gold, only the dried blood of His brow."
thinks the prayer request in this poem
might be written for her. Despite her start in a Mennonite family, she is now an "international traveller living and teaching in Asia."

What is a hobo? Hoboes is a name coined for men and women, but almost exclusive men that travel as migrant workers or left their friends and family in the depression or after wars when there was no work for them in their home cities.
What do hoboes do nowadays? Apparently, they travel
. And blog about it

Driving home last night I passed a Land Rover
. Not just any Land Rover, mind you, but a Land Rover headed from Virginia to the tip of South America
and back. Not only did these people implement some considerable alterations
to the vehicle, they are blogging
the details of the trip along the way. Nice to see some people come out of the 'bubble' with a bit of money and the gumption to chase their dreams.

The Ramon Stoppelenburg deathpool inaugurates as the naïve young lad jets to Sithifrica. Will he survive? “I found out that South Africa isn’t that criminal as I was told at previous places and by people I met on the road. It is just a country where you have to take extreme caution. I can’t just walk with my mobile phone to my ear in downtown Johannesburg and take some photographs with my camera at the same time. There is a minor possibility that I get shot to dead and mugged the next moment”
