Hi Matt,

I think those are all very good point re: serving in the developing world. Have you heard of www.survivorcorps.org? They're doing amazing work helping and connecting survivors of war in various countries. What's great about their work is that instead of swooping in to help and then leaving quickly, they equip survivors with the tools and experience to become leaders in their communities and advocates for change. They actually just went on a trip to Uganda and Burundi and shot this amazing footage:

Anyway, I'm so glad I found this blog. Very insightful!

Take care,
Lauren
