Beth and I are so proud of this couple and what they have achieved. They are doing a great job of developing others and building a community. They sent me a write up about their trip and I thought I would put it on here to share with the rest of you. This couple is a great example of what people should be like. They are great servants and love helping people.
Teresa and I choose the Sandals Grande Riviera resort in Jamaica for our vacation earned through the Life Leadership co. With four vacation destinations to choose from, we had a hard time deciding which one to take. Elisabeth, the travel agent, was great about asking questions to help us discern which vacation was right for us.
We have never had an opportunity like this before. There is something about “FREE” that makes it very unique and special. When all the arrangements are made and everything is paid for, it created the freedom to just sit back, relax, focus on one another and marvel at all of God’s beauty that surrounded the resort.
Sailing on the small sail boats was one of our favorite things to do each day. I joked that we should sail all the way to Cuba and back. However, after going out a few miles and starting to lose sight of land, Teresa said it was an idea just not a good one. We had a great laugh!
I would say eating must have rated right up there with sailing because we ate five times a day. It’s amazing how much of an appetite you can work up with a rigorous daily regiment of walks on the beach, dips in the ocean and reading A Month of Italy by Chris Brady and The Magic of Thinking Big by David Schwartz in a hammock under a palm tree. Actually to be more truthful the portions were just the right size to pull this off without feeling “stuffed” all day. The food was absolutely wonderful!
The thing I have missed the most after coming home was the housekeeper who would tidy up our little cottage every time we would leave. We sure wish we had one of those at home! (Dream solidified!) The care and friendliness of the entire staff at Sandals was great. They made you feel like royalty, as if we were the only ones there that mattered to them.
In closing, we would like to thank Steve and Beth Morgan and all our Band of Brothers family who have always lead the way and never stopped believing in us. We also want to thank the Life Leadership Co. and its founders for creating an opportunity for anyone who just wants a shot at life like Teresa and I. Like Orrin Woodward says: It’s not easy but it is worth it and this vacation was a much needed rest stop on the road to achieving more of our dreams. God Bless!
