  1. Oh no…I was thinking for my next challenge to walk across Death Valley to raise $ for my new orphanage. I would have the camels carry my water. Well I will have to keep thinking. Of course my now challenge is to just walk again, so, one step at a time as we pilgrims say.

Please share your reflection. Thank you.
