Okay, before any of my well-meaning friends jump to any conclusions, Bob is in his 50s and is happily married. ; )
Rather than be selfish with Bob, I really thought I shouldn't keep him to myself, but introduce him to all of you.
Meet Bob Goff - a lawyer, advocate, humorist, adventurer, husband, father, and what I also find attractive, a servant to the needy and defenseless in northern Uganda.
A chance meeting with an old friend in the Clatskanie Safeway store led me to read Bob's book "Love Does." I love his style of writing and found myself devouring the pages of his book, wanting to know what his next adventure would be.
|Doesn't he look like quite the character? :)|
From his first pellet gun injury to "sandwich stalking" his future wife, to inviting U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft to Uganda, to how he humorously fell into the position as a diplomat to an African country, each of his stories teaches a practical lesson. I also enjoyed the quotes at the beginning of each chapter, such as this one:
"I used to think you had to be special for God to use you, but now I know you simply need to say yes."
So, I invite you on the adventure with Bob. I know you'll enjoy it, because as he discovered...
"I used to think knowing God was like going on a business trip with Him, but now I know He's inviting me on an adventure instead."
