I'm not the same person I was.
As 2016 drew to an end, I didn't have many ideas about what 2017 would bring me. I had an idea I would like to visit Angola again, but otherwise I planned to merely maintain my usual routines.
But Angola changed the feel of the entire year. I did go back to Angola and it changed my life for the better. I learned more of what I was capable of, I performed tasks I thought myself unable to perform. I grew in faith and ability.
I find myself in such a different place as 2017 ends. I intend to visit Angola again in 2018; I will be continuing to develop the biography of my uncle's life which I began researching; I'm getting back into the comic book industry and will have a new publication to talk about soon; I'm taking on new ministry opportunities. I'm moving to a new office space.
Unlike 2017, I'm beginning the new year with anticipation for what is to come. More and more I'm coming to know myself better and better.
