What is the most interesting country you have visited or would like to visit? Why?
The interesting most interesting country I visited was India. I went with a mission team, and we visited orphanages and different places in Madras. It was the most interesting, yet poor country, I have been to. They lived in dirt, cattle walked across the road, whole families traveled on a motorcycle, and even though they didn’t have anything (including indoor bathrooms), they had cell phones. The country I would most like to visit is Israel.
If you could go back and meet any one famous historical figure, who would you pick and why?
Oral Roberts. I love to pray for people and see them healed. I would love to ask him questions.
