There are no places in this world that I’ve ruled out to never visit. I’d love to see as much of the world as I can! But then again, being a “world traveler” would increase my useage of all sorts of resources that might be better used in other ways – or maybe just not used. I don’t want to be selfish about it, but I do enjoy seeing and learning from new and different.
There are some really difficult, sad, dark, dangerous places in this world. I wouldn’t intentionally seek out those places. For instance, the red light district of Amsterdam would not be a healthy place for me. However, if I could go there with the means and plan to help people ensnared in the sex trade break free from it, then that would be a good reason to go, yes? No other reason seems prudent.
Here’s the deal: I’ve learned to never say never when it comes to places I wouldn’t go. My experience has been that’s when God just smiles and says wait & see.
Thinking of dangerous places to go in order to help people is very selfless of you.
To be fair, I don’t know just how selfless it *really* is, as I sit in the comfort of my current surroundings… but thank you for the encouraging words 😊
