When Amor Ministries invited the students at my church, in October 2007, to travel to Puerto Penasco, Mexico, I was immediately interested.

We didn't have a sandy beach with palm trees. We didn't have exotic fish or birds. We didn't have a five star hotel or room service. We didn't even have electricity.

It was my birthday, I was turning sixteen, and I was excited. I was in the car, on my way to somewhere very special. It was not, however, the DMV, it was the airport, and I was about to fly to Japan. A trip to Japan happens in steps. The first is in the international terminal of Chicago O'Hare. New...Tags:
