title. Impact the World
location. Clifton, Texas. My hometown of Clifton is the locale of a unique downtown experience. "Art Alley", a public art domain, is located behind downtown historic buildings and the home of The Cell Block, a 30's era jailhouse converted to boutique hotel.
story. Impact the World was inspired by my first trip to Zambia, Africa on a medical mission trip to provide prosthetic services in an underserved area. Growing up in the Bible Belt in a rural church, my concept of Church and what Jesus calls us to in loving our neighbor was brought into a new light during my trip. An expression of my initial feelings coming back from this mission trip, I find even today I seek to keep this concept fresh in my mind -- breaking traditional views and my comfort level to try to "be the light" and make an impact.
