"One of my biggest fears is to look back on my life and wished I would have lived it differently. Therefore I refuse to live a life of mediocrity. I meet so many people who have lost sight of their dreams and ambitions and settle for something else. I feel like I have been given this gift of life and I want to live it to the fullest."--Daren Wendell
One of my favorite books as a young woman was Peter Jenkins' Walk Across America--the true story of a disillusioned young man who decided to trek across the country in a quest for meaning. Along the way, he found God and even a wife.
Today I met a remarkable young man whose vision is even greater--some might say crazier. But Daren Wendell's life motto, straight out of John 10:10, is "live life to the fullest," and he wants to walk around the world.
Daren estimates that his trip will take about 7 years. His goal? To raise money for the Blood Water Mission, which aims to "empower Africans to build healthier communities through sustainable clean blood and clean water solutions."

You can find out more at Daren's website. I hope to blog more about our interview later, and perhaps include some sound clips.
