off-topic: Mission Trips

I went on a mission trip to Reynosa, Mexico last week.
We built two concrete block houses for two impoverished
and needy families.  Serving families in Reynosa was
like receiving a huge B-12 shot for the soul and spirit.
I find it somewhat uncomortable using any public forum
to espouse religious/spiritual matters, which I consider personal and
private, but I do feel comfortable offering that if you have the opportunity
to go somewhere and offer yourself in serving others, please consider doing so.
I think you will find it a rewarding experience!  I think that sharing this
info with you makes sense as the drumming community is truly a
supportive and giving group of individuals.  Religious/spiritual or not,
you can serve others.  It's a great experience.  Please do give it a try. 

Have a great day!

Thanks for sharing your experience with us Neal. You are always so generous with your time and talents, and it's inspiring to see and hear what comes out of that.
Neal,

I have not been fortunate enough to be able to go on a trip like you describe but it is something that I have always wanted to do.  Congrats!
